That’s what a friend just told me as today I’ve taken the plunge and signed up with Twitter.
So now I can tell everyone about when I go to buy carrots or whatever else fits into the 140 characters – generally writing related, no carrots to see here 🙂
I did find out that there is another Natalie Westgate though and she had already taken the username, which threw me to start with. Natalie_Westgate would have been a nice alternative, but Twitter only allows 15 characters for names and guess how many characters NatalieWestgate is? You guessed it, 15. So no underscore for me :/ But after many tries I found something that worked! So, if you want to follow me or tweet me (or do other things that I’m unfamiliar with on Twitter!) then you can find me at @N_Westgate 🙂 I’ll update the “follow” icons on this site to add one for Twitter after I’ve got used to tweeting!
Wish me luck.
Yay Nathalie!! Twitter is the PERFECT tool to attract readers – especially through Fridayflash…oh, you will love it!
LOL, I know the feeling with Twitter, I’m still learning how to do more with it than just the basics. Although one thing that I’d suggest is that if you have a FB page that you get yourself network blogged and twitter added there, and you can set your blog to auto tweet new subjects for you.
I followed you up to the “if you have a FB page” part and then you lost me lol! I shall have to do some research into that, thanks 🙂
PFirewolf, I friended you. Word of advice, put up an avatar picture. It’ll make people more likely to friend.
Welcome to Twitter.
Thanks 🙂 I’ve sorted the avatar out finally!
I’m definitely looking forward to taking part 🙂 Probably not in August because it will be a lot to do on top of Camp NaNoWriMo.
Welcome to blog and twitter world! Looking forward to following both. 🙂
Thank you 🙂
And yet today has been the first day that I’ve seen Welcome to the Future and not thought of the song by Hawkwind.
