100 top book-y tweeps to follow on Twitter
February 20th, 2012
I’ve just come back from an inspirational social media course for authors given by @benjohncock at the Faber Academy. One question at the end: who should we follow? I’ve been Twitter-ing for a year now, and have my own ‘starter pack’ of 100 tweeps who will keep you entertained and in touch with the book world.Follow them, and you’ll soon pick up lots of others who’ll link, post, blog and tweet you to what’s going on in publishing.
My first ten are novelists who make the most of social media and do it really well: @AliMcNamara, @Joannechocolat, @jojomoyes, @TalliRoland, @lindasgrant,@susanhillwriter, @david_hewson, @FannyBlake1, @DorothyKoomson, @AndrewCrofts. Check out their websites and other activity (Ali McNamara is all-round brilliant at social media, and Talli Roland has done some interesting things with epublishing, for example).
Tomorrow, 25 chatty novelists who help make Twitter a fun, helpful interactive, human conversation. Then onto publishers, agents, book pundits, reviewers, bloggers and bookshops over the rest of the week.
