Hello everyone! First off, I want to thank the people who have followed this blog over the past couple of days; I really appreciate it! I’m starting a more regular schedule of blogging in 2017 – one post per week, at least – as part of my efforts to get serious about social media.
With that in mind, I’m devoting today’s post to reviewing a book that’s been a big help to me lately – The Art of Twitter, by British novelist Daniel Parsons. Daniel’s been an inspiration to me in his use of Twitter as a marketing and networking tool, so I was very excited when he announced the release of his own guide to the site.
Simply put, if you’re a creator of any kind, The Art of Twitter is a must-read. It’s designed with a wide range of readers in mind – writers, artists, musicians, etc., so you don’t have to be a writer to get something out of it. Most of what I learned about Twitter was through trial and error, but TAOT de-mystifies the platform by explaining all the relevant Twitter terms and concepts. This is helpful even if you’re not a Twitter noob – I thought I knew a lot about the site, but Parsons alerted me to important things I hadn’t previously been aware of. He explains how Twitter can be a powerful business tool in the right hands, as well as the various mistakes you shouldn’t make with it. I’ve already begun to see significant returns in my own use of Twitter by putting the advice in this book into practice. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
The Art of Twitter is available for $3.99 on Amazon Kindle ($9.99 for the paperback version). Be sure to check out Daniel’s Amazon author page, where you can find his excellent fiction works, as well as his main website at www.danielparsonsbooks.com. Daniel’s own Twitter account can be found at the handle @dkparsonswriter. Following him will add a welcome dash of British humor to your Twitter feed. 🙂
