Coverage

22 March 2011

So, if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook at all, you probably saw this yesterday. It’s quite a good article, and not just because it quotes me.

I took a lot of shit early on for pushing out first drafts of novels via Twitter. A lot of writer-types on the Internet said that it was a stupid idea, that you shouldn’t use Twitter that way, that no one wants to read stories in bite-sized chunks, etc., etc.

Now, the thing that got me was the “you shouldn’t use Twitter that way” complaint. That’s the thing I love about Twitter, that you can use it however you want. The article does a good job of pointing that out, that people found creative uses for it rather than just telling the world what they just ate for lunch (which I do all the time). The truly fun thing about Twitter is finding something odd and creative and see where someone’s going with it.

So what’s the coolest thing you’ve found on Twitter? What are your opinions on Twitter? Please feel free to pimp Twitter projects/friends’ projects in the comments.

    I haven’t used twitter yet, but am hoping to set up an account sooner than later 🙂
