I'm @TankSpill on twitter.  I follow back anyone who follows me, and promise to try to say something interesting every now and then.  Mostly right now, you can find me participating in the #wotrr hashtag re-read of The Wheel of Time with Brandon Sanderson as he re-reads the series to prepare to write the last book.

I'm @FunkyScarecrow on twitter. I follow anyone who a. follows me, and b. doesn't appear to be a spambot. Don't expect a lot of relevance or regularity with the updates, though. For a chatty and garrulous sort of bloke in real life, I'm a bit on the quiet side when it comes to online social networking.

@MatthewTMaenpaa - and I'm pretty good about following back, though most of my tweets are horrendously random.

I missed the post about why one should use twitter…

I like twitter for a couple of reasons.  One is that it keeps things short. But more so, as a rural community college instructor, I really don't have a lot of people to talk pedagogy with.  However, with twitter, I can see what other people are doing in their online classes, discuss the latest plugins, follow innovative things like the Digital Humanities stuff that's happening right now, find out about conferences and grants.

And oh, via twitter, I managed to snag a 4 day pass for SDCC, Wild Wild West Con, and PHXCon.  All for the super early buyer price.

I too was a late-comer to Twitter, being generally stodgy about internet social trends.  What got me using it, other than as a promotional tool for my blog, was to help establish an Author platform.  From what I've heard from friends in the industry (interns mostly), publishers look for authors that have begun to self-promote at least a year in advance, from blogging to tweeting.  The more of a following you can develop for yourself, the more likely a publisher will consider your work.  Seems like sound logic, so I figured what the hell.

Twitter has a couple interesting uses.

One, you can set up RSS feeds for interesting keywords (for me, I follow Clojure [an interesting  programming language]) which has lead me to having discussions with some rather brilliant people, 140 characters at a time, including authors of some of the books about the language that are coming out.

It's also let me talk with some of my fellow writing enthusiasts local to me (I live in the Denver area) mostly met through NaNoWriMo but some have been beyond that as well.

In general it's a great way to come in contact with very smart people and have some interesting discussions... within limits of course ;)

I started using Twitter about a month or two ago at the behest of a friend. I use it to follow podcasts and authors that I like, as well as keeping updated on things happening in writing.
