Twitter in the New Year
By Natalie Bright
Take a look at this list of names:
McDonalds TX Panhandle
Can you tell me what this group has in common?
Give up yet?
All of these people, or place as in the McDonalds, are on Twitter and they followed me back. This is a big deal because they all have way more followers than I do. In all of these cases, I do buy their books, follow their blogs, and repost their tweets, except for McDonalds to which my teenager contributes. I believe that’s how social media works.
It’s not too late to make New Year’s Resolutions is it? I’ve decided to make an effort to be more friendly on Social Media. There’s really no reason to be snooty on Twitter. In my mind, we should all repost and retweet, and more importantly, follow back the people who follows us.
How do you determine who to follow back and who to skip over?
There are local people I know personally who did not follow me back on Twitter. If that’s you, out you go. I’ve had to unfollow a lot of you, so that I can follow back the people who are following me. It just good manners.
In 2015, I promise to be kinder, friendlier, and retweet all things bookish.
