And so I’ve gone around looking up famous-ish people (mostly authors) to follow. That seems to be the main advantage of Twitter over other social media. It’s seemingly low-effort, so lots of people use it who otherwise don’t have very much presence online.
I’m wary of getting into big discussions on Twitter, because of the confusing nature of threads of discussion, and also because character limits tempt me to be really concise at the expense of being understandable.
So I expect I’ll use it for three things:
1. Finding out about new books
2. Talking about books I’m reading
3. Supporting the occasional hashtag campaign.
