I just used the Twitter Status Generator and it gave me: "Gloomily incensed and considering the implications of slander." I have to admit that I like it. Twittering may not be my tool. I don't have any photos or music that I want to share ( I don't know how to burn songs) and I don't want to get updates on my cell phone!
So, two days ago, I signed up to be included in the Librarians Directory in the Tweeters Directory. It didn't seem like it went through and it said that you had a certain amount of time to edit your entry, so I changed it a bit and figured that I'd add a picture later. Today I looked and I am in the directory, which is nice, but I'm in it twice and I see no way to remove the extra listing or add a photo now. Sigh.
I've also started to follow Mr. Tweet , so we'll see what comes of that.
3/13: I got a direct message from Mr. Tweet with 200 recommendations of interesting people. I enjoyed that, and started following about 10 more people. Mostly authors.
I tried to look at the Twilert page for tracking, but got a message that the page can't be displayed. Looked into Twitter Packs, which was easy to browse, but I found nothing new for me. Am unimpressed with Tweet Scan. I set up keywords on Twitterel: teen librarian, teen book, steampunk, books and library. I suspect that these are too general.
My best results came from just following people my "friends" follow. I was able to find a number of amazing teen authors that way. So, that is satisfying.
But, now I'm Twittered out!
