To Tweet Or Not To Tweet…

With my grandmother joining Facebook and getting an email account all in the same week, it’s come to my attention that I’m slipping behind the times.  My mother and step-dad regularly Tweet like others in our family and I think it might just be time that I join Twitter before my grandmother beats me to it.  I’ve been looking for a way to branch out and give my blog a chance for more exposure and I’m starting to think this might be a way to do so.

The bad news is that I’m going to have to get a Twitter tutorial from my parents…so much for being the cutting edge child!  I know a lot of my fellow bloggers take advantage of the Twitter universe, but I would love to know what you really think about it.  Did it increase your subscriber base?  Is it a good way to connect with other bloggers that you regularly follow?  Please share your stories as I consider embarking on this new area of the digital universe.

    I’ve syndicated my blog posts to Twitter before, and it has helped me to get more views on each post. It has also spawned some responses to my content that likely people wouldn’t have gone through the effort of making in the blog’s comments. The issue, though, is that I already had an established Twitter account with a base of followers before I began. I can’t say what type of an impact it may have if you’re starting completely from scratch.

    • Thanks for the feedback. It’s good to know that those with a strong base of Twitter followers found that introducing their blog to these people could improve their site visits. I’ll keep that in mind.
