Just chiming in again to say I just followed recent posters who included a link to their account. I usually check in every month or so to follow blueboarders.  FYI - You make it much easier for others to follow you if you include your link like this:

 https://twitter.com/mdlaurel

It can be difficult to find you if someone has to type in a name or handle. All you have to do is copy and paste the link. If your name doesn't paste properly you can just type it in after .com. The link should still work. It should be easy to include this in your recent posting if you just go back to your post and click edit and then paste your link into your post.

Hope this helps someone get more followers   ;)

I just got started on Twitter. I haven't followed anyone  yet, but I promise I will...  Just need to figure out what I'm doing first.  Did you know Debbie Ohi has an awesome Twitter guide for writers & illustrators over at http://inkygirl.com/a-writers-guide-to-twitter/

I see people have not posted here for quite some time, but I figure it cannot hurt. I am new to Twitter and plan to start tweeting in December. I would be more than happy to follow fellow writers.

Thank you in advance to anyone who clicks 'follow'

Well there was only one post last year. But I'll post mine too, just in case. It's https://twitter.com/CCarter_Art

Hope to meet some new people.

I love twitter and just followed you! There is another older thread about how authors can use twitter effectively here:

I hardly ever tweet: I have an account, but that's about it.
How often do you guys do it? Just checked on mine and my cousin has over 11,000!

My goal was to tweet everyday. But that's really hard for me to do. I don't necessarily like twitter, but am trying my best to use it as a networking device to help my career.  I know some people say to tweet 3 times a day, but I think that's just too much for me.

I never really realized this thread was here--wow. But it looks like it hasn't been very active in the last few years. I'm on Twitter now, so I just followed the last six or so people who shared here. This is who I am:

Fiona, for what it's worth, I'm trying to Tweet about once a week. I'm just learning and am still mostly there to watch what other people do.

I totally forgot about this thread! I've recently gotten active on Twitter again after a very long absence. I just followed you, Lucy, and will go back a ways in this thread and follow others. If I don't get to you, follow me and I'll follow you back!

Me too, June. (@juliekidsbooks) I think it really suits this picture book writer - short and sweet. It doesn't take too long to write something each day (or re-tweet something useful), unlike when I tried to keep a blog.

Too true. Blogs are very labor intensive.
