to Tweet or not to Tweet

Turns out, despite his brilliance, Shakespeare may have been asking the wrong question. In today’s modern age, authors no longer wonder whether “to be or not to be” but rather if they should take the plunge and open a Twitter account.
That is precisely the muddle I’m in at the moment. I’ve been told by countless marketing bloggers and sites to join. Now. However, a part of me has always instinctively said No. At times, I feel overwhelmed with the maintenance of this site and the various other online ventures I use to share news of my writing. Add in the dozen or so blog feeds I peruse daily, and I’m just fine thank you. There is never enough time to write, and social media seemingly gobbles up more than its fair portion of those fleeting free moments without adding one more serving to my plate.
For the first time in over a year, I’m tempted. Very. I don’t want to use it to tweet my own horn (so to speak), but I am anxious to catch the witty insights of other authors, bloggers, and publishers. It would be great to get industry news and updates and discover talent I never knew existed.
I’ll get back to you on what I decide. I’m still thinking…
Q: Do you Tweet? If so, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!
