Paul, tweetbig is a cool service, but you have to pay a monthly fee.

Clipper, there are conversations that take place, and you can also make you're own conversations by tweeting to others and commenting on what they have to say, even if it's a link. I'll often times post a link with a cool post/pic and someone will write back to comment, and then the conversation goes from there. # Amwriting always has a fair amount of back and forth going around, and there's also alot of scheduled chats. As for including hashtags with your tweets, I keep it to a max of 3.

I'm not big on The Twit, however, it's really one of the STRONGEST ways to get your info out to a community of like-minded people (your followers). I go and check it out everyday, but don't twit everyday. I'm not like the guy who twits, "Ah! Cheese!" or "Yup, that was a great cookie!" I keep my twits 98% of the time focused on my writing. My agent is on Twitter now, too, so it's fun to twit at her once in awhile.

You'd be surprised how quickly you can gain followers. And you don't HAVE to follow EVERYONE that follows you. I mean, I get followed by pornsites, but I block those.

My two favorite hashtags are: #amwriting and #amdrinking.

The first Mark Mallen novel, Untold Damage, is now available via Midnight Ink! Look for the second Mark Mallen novel, Critical Damage in April of 2014 (Should we all be here, natch).

Hi Caterina,

Some people will unfollow if you didn't follow back. Maybe that's what happened.

I love Twitter. It's so fun and a great way to boost your platform. Y'all just convinced me to try tweetdeck, I'm sold. So glad it's free.

Twitter is my favorite social media platform, hands down.  Now that they allow my to attack an image, I'm pretty much in hog heaven.
