Last time we talked about hashtags.  This time I’ve got more Twitter Gold for you.  I call these the @’s.

The idea of the @’s is that these are people on Twitter who will graciously distribute your information to their lists if you send them the information.

I discovered one such angel quite on accident.  His/her name is now @indie_promo  This person has a list of over 39,000 and will RT your info if you send it to them.

So a tweet with an @ would look something like this:

“Maggie and Keith have deep wounds from painful childhood experiences” DEEP IN THE HEART #KindleFire @indie_promo


You can also send it directly to them by putting the @ at the beginning of the tweet.

Generally speaking, I try to thank my @’s as much as possible for their help.  For awhile (through my free days), I used these people quite often.  Since my free days, I have kind of backed off–just not wanting to be annoying.  However, they are good as gold so treat them that way.

Also, use these sparingly!  Tweeting too many times to the same @ can get you in trouble if that @ is not a Retweeter!  Try to establish a relationship with these tweeters first!

Here is a list of some of my @’s:











It is helpful to follow them before you start sending them things and make sure your genre fits what they RT.  But this is a great way to broaden your reach on Twitter.

Let’s talk a little about the “language barrier” on Twitter. The idea of Twitter is that you can follow a TON of information from different sources if it’s all comprised in 140-characters or less.  So you can read the latest about the big fire that’s in the news and something about the temperature…

Along with Facebook, I resisted Twitter like the plague.  Last year at this time, I thought people who tweeted were a little on the crazy side.  Well, I guess I’ve joined the crazies because I love Twitter, and it is, by far, my favorite way to market. However, it wasn’t a one-jump to…
