To Tweet or Not to Tweet (Part 2)

I need some twitter advice.
I was thinking about starting another twitter account for my book, In the After. I think you have to set up an entirely different account though, and log in and out each time you want to tweet. What do people think? Does anyone have more than one twitter account? Has it been effective? Does it drive you crazy?


  1. I'm sure you're familiar with certain authors creating twitter handles for their characters and even though it can be easy to switch off if you're doing things mobile, I think you risk missing followers on your central account when you're off tweeting from another. I also think the only successful character handles on twitter are parodic.

    Also, when it comes time for your next book and all that follow, you might feel expected to rinse and repeat with a new handle and it might just become more burdening than fun.

    I think you're best off with a single account and spreading the good word. Let your super-mega-obsessed readers do all the extra fan accounts for you. =]

    I'm interested in seeing what others think!

  2. I'd stick with a single account. Work on developing your brand and getting your name out there. There are so many different networking platforms that creating more than one account on each seems like it could be overkill. Do you have a tumblr yet? I've just started looking into setting one up myself.

  3. My blog buddy Patrick Dilloway has like seventeen twitter accounts. I think twitter is kinda dumb lol

  4. I suggest sticking with one account and making sure your book promotions are spread out among your other tweets/conversations. People don't follow accounts that are pure promotion. And I think I saw advice somewhere just this week that suggested no more than 1 promotional tweet out of 10. Let me see if I can go find the link ...

    Okay, here it is:

  5. As a reader as well as a writer, I tend to like to follow an author, not a project. I agree with Dianne that it would feel like a promotion, not like following a person. Plus I'd be unlikely to follow the book itself knowing that I'd have "twitter clutter" to clean up when you moved on to the next thing.

  6. I would stick with the single account.

  7. I am so happy, i never believe i will be this happy again in life, I was working as an air-hoster ( cabby crew ) for 3years but early this year, i loose my job because of this deadly disease called Herpes virus (HSV), I never felt sick or have any symptom, till all workers were ask to bring their doctors report, that was how i got tested and i found out that am HSV positive that make me loose my job, because it was consider as an STD and is incurable disease, i was so depress was thinking of committing suicide, till i explain to a friend of mine, who always said to me a problem share is a problem solved, that was how she directed me to Dr Isibor, that was how i contacted him and get the medication from this doctor and i got cured for real, I just went back to my work and they also carry out the test to be real sure and i was negative. Please contact this doctor if you are herpes positive diseases his email is: or you can call or whatsApp his mobile number on +2348107855231.

  8. Joy and happiness is all i can see around ever since i came in contact with this great man. i complained bitterly to him about me having herpes only for him to tell me it’s a minor stuff. He told me he has cured thousands of people but i did not believe until he sent me the herbal medicine and i took it as instructed by this great man, only to go to the hospital after two weeks for another test and i was confirmed negative. For the first time in four years i was getting that result. i want to use this medium to thank this great man. His name is Dr Oyagu, i came in contact with his email through a friend in UK and ever since then my live has been full with laughter and great peace of mind. i urge you all with herpes or HSV to contact him if you willing to give him a chance. you can contact him through this email or you can also WhatsApp him +2348101755322
    He also cured my friend with HIV and ever since then i strongly believe he can do all things. Don't be deceived thinking he does not work, i believe if you can get in contact with this man all your troubles will be over. i have done my part in spreading the good news. Contact him through his email and you will be the next to testify of his great work.
