Well folks (or is that supposed to be tweeps …) – it's official ! I'm no longer a technological 'tard – I am now on twitter ! YAY ! I have signed up and am part of that wonderful and crazy sphere known as Twitterverse (see , I do learn fast , after all …)

But I have a question . Actually a few … Some tweeters have thousands of followers and also follow just as many . Now honestly speaking , how does the tweeter with hundreds of followers read all those tweets ? And how does he/she manage his/her twitter feed ? Sounds crazy ! Is it just for status ? And how do you respond to hundreds of tweets per day , or is it hundreds per hour or per minute ? Is a tweeter expected to respond to every single tweet that twits by ? Is there official twitter etiquette or twitter ethics ? Or would that be tweetiquette or tweethics ?


From a writer's perspective , how on earth would you find time to write if you have to respond to hundreds of tweets every day ?

    You don't. Basically, you update your status like you would on Facebook and fall into conversation like we did today. 
    It's actually a relaxed environment to be in. Trust me.

    If you check your mentions you can see just the comments aimed at you specifically (or about you) which is all that matters, right?

    Congratulations! I know it'll help your writing career for sure. I've been on twitter for awhile but I don't think I've unlocked its full potential just yet. MOstly I use it for announcing new blog posts or blogger friends' contests. ONe of these days, I'll have to learn more about twitter. 🙂

      Thanks Nutschell ! I’m looking forward to exploring the features and checking out what it has to offer … it will take some time though … 🙂
