I am starting to find that Twitter is becoming increasingly useful for people to stay in touch with its readers or even promote a new e-book. I won’t go into details about how to do that here, but David over at TeleRead.org has an extensive DIY guide on how to do exactly that.
Kat has pumped out some 5,000 Twitter updates. She subscribes to messages from more than 1,000 fellow users and has attracted more than 1,500 “followers.” I also track Tim O’Reilly, founder of O’Reilly Media, now up to 54,807 followers, still a fraction of Barack Obama’s 379,716 before the First Keyboarder apparently abandoned Twitter for more conventional media. Unlike Obama, Kat can’t hold White House news conferences.
