If you’re an author, you too can stay connected with your readers on Twitter by following these simple yet impactful tips.

Use Threads or build newsletters to tell a long-form story

To share information on your upcoming book launch, seminar or even interesting excerpts and anecdotes, which are longer than 280 characters, you can use Twitter Threads. It will connect all your Tweets to form one cohesive stream. You can either Tweet the full thread all together or Tweet by Tweet over time.

Retweet with a comment

To provide additional context to your readers, Retweet with a comment Tweets of your #WritingCommunity members. You can add additional text, images, GIFs, or videos to a Retweet with this feature.

Make an announcement

Share what you’re Reading

Everyone loves to build a to be read (TBR) pile, let the author community know by sharing what you’re currently reading. You can also mention other authors or publishing houses by including their Twitter handle or tagging them in a photo, or maybe hosta Twitter Poll to invite readers to vote on what to read next while asking them to share titles that are on their TBR list.

Include more than one image in a single Tweet

You can Tweet one to four images at a time, so make the most of this feature and add some visual appeal to your timeline by sharing the moments that are most important to you or thoughts that you connect with.

Thank your Readers for helping you grow
