The Musician’s Mini-Guide To Twitter

Guitar-Playing Twitter Bird - The Musician's Guide To TwitterI just love it when someone goes out of their way to make my music career easier.  The nice folks at Twitter have done just that with their brand new mini-guide, “Twitter for Musicians and Artists“:

For music fans, Twitter is the next best thing to being backstage. And for performers, connecting with your fans in an authentic way is one key to your success. A Twitter connection tells fans how much you appreciate them, and it also enables you to tailor your messages. The fact is, Twitter provides more authenticity and creative control than any other online medium. Tweets come straight from you, and go right to your followers all over the world, in real-time.

One of my favorite things about this guide is that they use real tweets from stars like Katy Perry, Selena Gomez and Bruno Mars as examples for showing how musicians should be using Twitter to interact with their fans.

For Twitter newbies, concepts like re-tweeting and the use of hashtags are very clearly explained.

I’m calling this a mini-guide because the entire thing can be read in about 5 minutes.  Of course all the info in the world is essentially useless if you don’t act on it.  So let me leave you with today’s challenge:

  1. Spend five minutes reading, “Twitter for Musicians and Artists“.
  2. Choose your favorite tip and use it to connect/interact with your fans today.
