Twitter Thursday #1

Posted August 15, 2013 by Kathy in Twitter Thursday / 7 Comments

Twitter Thursday is a weekly meme to share some of the exciting news from this weeks Twitter.  I have only been blogging for about 2 weeks and I am amazed at all the information you can find on Twitter.
I’ve had a personal Twitter account which I only followed 30 (to be honest I was “cyber-stalking” my favorite shows and actors!). But with my blogger account I am now following over 150 (bloggers, authors, and publishers) and I can’t believe the amount of tweets I read through each day!  So it can be overwhelming but I am posting some of the great tweets I found from this last week!

The following tweet had me jumping up and down – it was a RT from one of my favorite authors, Kresley Cole!! I was so excited but my daughters just gave me the “you’re so weird Mom” look.  So I said to them “how would you feel if Justin Bieber or One Direction replied to your email or tweet?” My girls replied “Ohhh!” but went back to giving me that weird look lol.

Fun! RT @NookbksNmore: Check out my blog for my first Saturday’s Series Spotlight on #ImmortalsAfterDark @kresleycole

This tweet is from another one of my favorite authors, Rachel Van Dyken.  Her latest book Ruin was released on August 12th and the first 2 weeks of sales will be donated to her uncle’s medical bills. Her beloved Uncle Jobob is in his final stage of cancer, which has left his family in debt from medical expenses.  Ruin is dedicated to her uncle, mother in law, cancer survivors and families who have lost loved ones to the disease.  So please check out her book at Barnes & Noble or Amazon
