When I decided to try out Twitter I did not know what to expect at all…..what I found was a wonderfull community where people are willing to share ideas and support each other, help when you need it and give you a push too.
Of course there are bots and bad follows but there is a block button to make them disappear and that just leaves you with a wonderful group of people.
I came into twitter with little confidence in my art and little knowledge in what to do with it but I have learned and grown so much with the help of these people…..I hope some of them have learned from me too.
Twitter is a great place to find people with common interests and a great place to have amazing conversations. I am truly grateful to all of these people for helping me along the way.
If you are new to Twitter then
Be yourself, don’t try to be a ‘business’
Get followers yourself, find people that interest you, follow them and see who they are following that interest you. Do not use any of the follow ‘bots’ – they just annoy people and get you ‘bot’ followers that are useless!!
Join in conversations
Have fun and enjoy!
Here is my Twitter Role of Honour…..I hope I have not missed anyone and I am sorry if I have. All of these people are worth following whatever your interests.
