Twitter. Ah, Twitter.

I like Twitter.

I really, really do.

I just went about it the wrong way in the beginning and now it’s biting me in the rear.

See, when I was adding Tweeps like crazy, I neglected to categorize them in lists.

Oh how I wish I had done that from the very start.  Now the thought of going through my whole followers section makes me want to……….never open my Twitter page again.

So, I have a plea.

Please leave your Twitter handle in the comment section so I can put you on my list of people where I actually want to see your tweets.

THANK you.

*  I am giving away a set of Calphelon skillets.  Giveaways ends on May 2nd.

*  Be sure to stop back in tomorrow.  I’m going to be giving away a $100 gift card to Barnes and Noble (can you hear the book worm in me singing with glee?), with links to 3 other $100 gift card giveaways.

      Jo! I’m so happy for you.

      On line following? I can help. Email me. If easier, we can chat on the phone, too. When you do get published I hope you let me be in on publicizing your book. 🙂 If not, I’m still going to beg for an autographed edition! 🙂 Seriously though, email or call me.

      I feel the same way about you.

      How is it possible that yesterday was my first visit to your site?

      Which reminds me. I need to add you to my reader. Now. 🙂

    I don’t get on twitter as often as I thought I would…and when I do I’m so far behind in reading tweets that it drives me crazy….perhaps I should start listing too

    (also wondering if you have found a solution to the Threaded Comment plugin… mine hasn’t been working (meaning people don’t get the emails). are you having the same problem?)

      Angie says

      OK. Be sure to email me back if you get this so that I know it’s working. As you know, I was having issues for awhile and it turns out that another plug in was causing the problem. I’m not sure which one it is, but if you’ve installed new plug ins lately, that’s probably the issue. If you want, I can send you a list of possible culprits?

    I get kind of overwhelmed by Twitter sometimes. And confused when people’s blogs and twitter names are so different.

    Oh my goodness, I know how you feel but just not on that large of a scale. In fact, I started building lists in the beginning but it just got too time consuming. *sigh* In any case, my Twitter ID is @TweetingMama. Please add me to the Awesome Never-Fails-Parenting-101 List. Thank you. lol

    I think we’ve got each other. @SeriousKrystyn

    And, I don’t have a single group or list on twitter set up. I can only see it at night and on the weekends. Hope that makes you feel better!

    PS Since we are asking questions and this the thesis theme you are using? And, how did you get that fancy box at the top on the with different tabs (welcome, search, buttons, etc)?

    My bookworm heart is going pitter pat at the thought of $100 to B&N. Just think, I could read new releases without having to pay a fine or return them to the library before I finish them!

    I know… I was in the world of twitter WAY before lists… and guess what? I just found out the hard way (do I ever find out the easy way?) That you can only have 500 tweeps on a list… grrr.
    So now i have a goodncrazy list and a goodncrazy2 list.. 🙂 Ha! That’ll show em!

    In case I’m not on your most favoritest met in real life friend list.. I’m CarissaRogers on twitter… 🙂 Just so you know…

    You know me – TwitAdrian. I hear ya about the list thing. I get these followers that seem so random and I’m not sure how they found me and if I even want them reading all my tweets, so I judiciously prune my list every couple of weeks and at least week out the weirdos and the obvious spammers.
