The 15 Best Twitter Lists for Writers

by | Jan 21, 2014

Twitter is an awesome tool for sharing and promoting your work as well as connecting with your community of readers. However, it’s equally important to meet others in your industry and build a resource of contacts for support and encouragement.

Thanks to the ease of using Twitter and the instant accessibility of its users, it’s one of the best places to turn to in order to accomplish this level of connection. But with up to 60,000 tweets shared everyday, it can be hard to cut through the chatter and find what you need. This is where Twitter lists come in.
