[If you're just getting started on Twitter, check out our "Top 3 Articles About Promoting Your Book on Twitter."]

You’ve been using Twitter for a little while now to promote your book. You’ve uploaded your profile pic and posted a bio. You’ve been tweeting, re-tweeting, favoriting, replying, following, and gaining followers yourself. You’re familiar with hashtags, mentions, and direct messages. You’re using Twitter in order to share interesting information, post exciting news about your own writing career, and join other conversations. (i.e. — you’re not a Twitter spammer; you’re not just screaming “Buy my book” every few hours.)

(Sounds like a condition, right?) In this article, you’ll learn a few new tricks to take your Twitter game to a whole new level. And you can do all your tweeting in less time than it takes to cook, eat, and clean the dishes.
