Web 2.Oh. . .really? author, Craig Stoltz, wrote a blog post about how, despite having edited “miles of copy in [his] day,” Twitter has won him over by constantly asking him to sharpen his editing skills.
After all, writing a rich story in only 140 characters is not for the faint of heart. It takes ruthless editing, careful attention to detail, semantics, reference, and punctuation.
If my Twitter guest post didn’t convince you to try Twitter, maybe a real, true writer and editor’s claim that it can help you be a better writer will convince you? If nothing else, it’s a way to keep your writing skills sharp. Plus, it has the added benefit of helping to keep you in touch with your friends and family.
What are you waiting for?
