And this is why I’m addicted to Twitter.

Maybe ‘addicted’ is too strong a word. I’m not dependent on Twitter. But I’ve never tried to quit.

And I don’t plan on doing so any time soon. Why? Because it’s fun! (And useful, too!)

Diane Capri on Twitter


Here are just a few of the ways I use Twitter:

  • To live tweet events, like Lee Child’s video chat the other day (For those unfamiliar, live tweeting is when you remark on an event in real time as it’s happening and interact with other Twitter users following the same event.)
  • To meet other authors and share news about our books
  • To share quotes — literary, inspirational, and just plain funny
  • To provide short, quick updates from conferences. For example, last week I attended the NINC (Novelists, Inc.) Conference in St. Pete, FL. While I’m there, I tweeted updates from the conference using #NINC
  • To announce specials, giveaways, and new releases
  • To procrastinate:
    Twitter - Cute Emergency

 (Thanks, @CuteEmergency…)

Here are several users I follow that I’d recommend:

  • @LeeChildReacher – To keep up with the worldwide bestselling author of the Jack Reacher thrillers
  • @TheTwelveXII – This is the group I write the Flight 12 series with. Monthly giveaways are announced from this account.

Twitter - The Twelve

  • @BethDexter – I follow her tweets about general bookishness, true crime mysteries, and insider TV journalism stuff.

Twitter - Beth Dexter

  • @KitchenDaily – They offer appetite-inducing recipes, cooking tips, and other tempting kitchen ideas

Twitter - Kitchen Daily

  • @MondayBlogs – Every Monday, this account shares interesting blogs from around the world.
  • @ao_BookQuotes – Daily quotes from all kind of books

Twitter - Bok Quotes

Do you use Twitter? My handle is @DianeCapri. If you have an account, hop on over and follow me! I’ll follow back. (If I don’t, give me a nudge!)

Caffeinate and Carry On!
