Just general thoughts about Twitter. Please add yours here.

I've started a list of publishers, anyone can subscribe to it. There's probably a lot still to be added and there's no sorting by country of anything useful.

I'm @frellathon I tend to use triberr to share others posts which in turn gets my posts tweeted much more though I have far too many bots following me and I'm not really sure how to take advantage of it the way others seem to be able

I've heard of triberr but never looked into it. What does it have that made you use it?

Book bloggers that I know used it so I joined in on their tribe. We all share each others posts and this way have much greater reach

I'm @debbishdotcom on Twitter.

I'm also @schmiet and @thefrasercoast - but neither of those are book-related.

Every post of mine comes through @mwikramanayake on Twitter and I maintain a Twitter list of book bloggers so if I spot anyone who is a book blogger on Twitter I add them to it. Will have to check out grinder though. :) I use IFTTT to make sure everything gets posted through to googe plus and Facebook and so on.

Having a conversation on Twitter with Wade and his reply was 'Twitter is people' which pretty much sums up how to talk to people there. Treat (tweet?) as them as people and have a conversation with them in order to make them want to read your stuff.

I'm still not sure what the purpose of twitter is. I only have a blog a/c @brona68 and I mainly use to it share and find reviews/meme's/book events or to share quotes when reading along with others.

How do others use/view twitter?

At the moment I rarely use it. I used to use it to keep up with various friends who also had book blogs or ran book chats or stuff like that. My Twitter client stopped working and I found I wasn't using it as much.

I know there are twitter management options 'out there' but have never used one.

Does anyone find them useful?
Which ones are best?
What should I look for?

I feel like I miss a lot of tweets because I only check it occasionally.

How do you create groups (ie a book bloggers group?)

There are heaps of management options for twitter but I prefer to do it all from a good twitter app. You can create lists so you can group all the Aussie book bloggers into one list.

Twitter is hard to explain and hard to teach, I always say you just have to jump in and try. I'm obsessed with twitter and think of it as one of the best tools out there for promoting my blog and talking to like minded readers.

Lists are the thing with Twitter. You create lists and then just wander down the lists. If you have a good Twitter client you can have them all showing at the one time and just move from one to the other. I'm using Tweetdeck which is good, I've forgotten the one I used to use that flashed new tweets up on my desktop so I could keep working while keeping up to date.

I joined in a readathon recently & decided to use twitter throughout to get better at it. It certainly added to the readathon experience having instant access to folks all around the world.

Can you recommende a good twitter app?
