A Little Review
Twitter is fun!
Twitter is a great way to see what people who you find interesting are doing, reading and recommending. On Twitter you can follow other artists, galleries, museums, arts festivals, companies that make or sell art supplies and just about anyone else that interests you.
Have a Strategy
You need a strategy and need to know why you are on Twitter or any social media for that matter. What do you hope to accomplish and how you are going to execute it? Here are a few things you need to look at as to the reasons to be on Twitter:
- Do you want to make new contacts?
- Do you want to learn about new things, ideas and techniques?
- Do you want to ask questions and seek advice?
- Do you want to help others?
- Do you want to use Twitter to help sell your art?
- Are you looking for a social experience?
When you can answer these questions about why you are on Twitter your path to success on this social media platform will become easier. The Bottom Line – Know why you are on Twitter and what you expect out of it.
