As I typed this yesterday, I had 992 followers on Twitter. I don’t know why I’m a little excited at getting so close to 1,000. Does it really matter? Does anyone care? Why do I care?

Well, I’ll tell you. It’s fun. I’ve made a few real friends among those followers, shared information and fun links, laughed out loud at how clever some people can be in 100 characters or less.
The folks I follow have pointed the way to new blogs and books to read, movie reviews, and helpful hints on everything from healthy eating to recycling to good writing.
If you’re careful about the amount of time you spend at this addictive social media venue, you’ll have a great opportunity to make contacts all over the world. It’s like having 1,000 pen pals.
Other than just having fun, Twitter is a writer’s paradise for networking with other writers and readers and non-readers who might want to buy your book for Aunt Mabel for Christmas because Aunt Mabel reads ten books a week.
I think it would be pretty cool to go over 1,000 followers today, so if you haven’t followed me yet, here’s where you go: http://twitter.com/PStoltey
