Guides instructing Artists on how to use Twitter
In my opinion, the single best way to understand how to leverage Twitter to good effect is to use it.
Set yourself up an account and start following people. Don’t know whom to follow? Look for some people with lots of followers, but who aren’t following many people, and then follow who they are following. Chances are that these people who have a ton of followers, but aren’t following many themselves have weeded out the extraneous, and are only following people who provide some value.
From these people you will learn best practices. You will see how they leverage the tech to advance their agenda (whatever that may be), and you will be able to assimilate these practices for your own efforts.
One person who is leveraging Twitter (as well as just about everything else) to advance his own agenda is Gary Vaynerchuk. I’ve written about Mr. Vaynerchuk and his project, Wine Library, before. It’s not surprising that he’s really slamming Twitter.
I’d suggest you follow him on Twitter. Do so by joining Twitter, and then going to his Twitter home page and clicking “Follow.” As of 10am on Oct 3rd, Mr. Vaynerchuck has nearly 16,000 people following him. Discounting for people who are following but inactive and/or not online at any given time, each time Mr. Vaynerchuck posts a tweet, some (I’m guessing) 8,000 people immediately see what he’s got to say. Depending on what hes says, that’s powerful.
While you’re following people, don’t forget to follow yours truly. I’ll follow you in return, and we’ll get some dialog going.
