I was first told to get a twitter account by my nephew when he got fed up of me posting about last year’s Eurovision on facebook. I know it’s sad, I watch Eurovision it one of the highlight of my year, posting disparaging comments about it. I did get a twitter account not for Eurovision but to help publicize my blog.
I now use twitter two ways firstly to publicize my blog only with limited success. So far I have only had 27 clicks via twitter. I also use it to share others bloggers posts I like. I didn’t’ want to fill my blog up with re-blogs so it was a compromise.
I have had some very kind people re-tweet my post and have done likewise but I have the feeling I’m not using it to its true potential. I recently noticed my tweet name add to a tweet that was being re-tweeted (sorry lots of tweets in that sentence) but some very nice fellow bloggers. I’m not sure what that was about, and me being me didn’t ask any of them.
So apart from keeping my nephew happy during Eurovision has anyone else got a clever way of using twitter?
