How do you use Twitter?
@Aleksey Thank you for that giant cheat! I do love instagram and all the tags you can use, but my engagement isn’t that high yet, so my work doesn’t pop up on the top 9 for tags with 50,000+. Do you listen to One Fantastic Week? Those guys talk a lot about finding a community of people that will follow your work, because you’re the artists who makes work about the things they love, and maybe twitter is a good place to find those communities.
Thank you for that insight - I probably would have followed too many people :-p but now I will more carefully “curate” my feed.
@lmrush Incredible! It’s actually stories like yours that makes me want to jump on the twitter game - It sounds like it can be an amazing tool.

@kaitlinmakes I don’t I listen to comic lab. They also believe the same thing but also talk about social media because they use it for their webcomics. The issue with social media is that unless you pay the companies, they’re going to hide your work from 75% of viewers. So either platform is tough unless something trends. But what is your goal with social media exactly?
Anyone have any good recommendations for illustration-centric accounts that are either informative or entertaining? Looking to expand our feed
@kaitlinmakes what’s your Twitter handle?

How do I use Twitter? At the moment I don't lol
I find it fun to just pop on and say something, post an image or something, but I felt like I was wasting my time. So I stopped for a while.
It's also bonkers looking at my feed, I've had some nice chats with people on there, but people I want to follow seem to get lost among the noise. It's so busy, I seem to be scrolling to get to the things I actually wanted to follow. I think it's due to it putting retweets and stuff into the feed.
I think it's good for brain dumping though.
I've been asking the question lately, do we really need social media? I listened to a podcast and a successful author said he never used social media, and he still had million selling books.
I came away from it thinking, instead of focusing on sharing stuff, focus on creating stuff that is so good, everyone else will share it for you lol
focus on creating stuff that is so good, everyone else will share it for you
Don’t have one yet :p but when I do I’ll reach out to you
