A Blog about Music Production, HipHop, and Life

Networking With Twitter

Posted by Ms.Tris On July - 30 - 2008

What’s poppin’ this morn?…I’ve officially been blogging almost 4 straight months..yaay.. Remember the aim is to help musicians and artist, or anyone who stops by to be successful in several aspects of music, hip hop, and life. Sometimes I’ll just shoot the breeze, and do some fun stuff. I mentioned earlier that this is my personal blog as well. I am a producer/artist first and blogger/teacher 🙂 second. So of course I am sharing AND networking. So if you have artist, or know anyone that you think I could work with don’t be shy…

When I first published a post I had no idea there was a whole world online dedicated to Blogging. There is so much info about how to promote. Keeping my readers in the know is important, so I decided to explain all the little buttons in my sidebar>>>(over to your right). I won’t do it all in one shot, but I will gradually post the sites I use to network and meet new people in music, and life. If you plan to start a site, join every one of those social networks for bloggers/webmasters… I can’t express how they have helped me as a new blogger.

Today I want to explain “Twitter”. This is a site that connects you to friends, family, and people from all over. It ask a simple question, ” What are you doing?” and you respond within 140 characters like a text message. When I first joined I thought” This is probably a waste of time”, later I saw several of my Blog mentors using it without cease. So of course I checked it out further.

I noticed not only do people twit-tweet-text (whatever you want to call it) about themselves,they give information. Information on Hip Hop, art, news, and anything that’s currently going on. They give links to sites, and updates often. I finally got the whole concept last week,when I met 3 new bloggers, a music engineer, and an artist. I am currently following them, and they follow me. So that’s 5 more people who know about my site and 5 more people who share information that I need. It’s pretty clear to me now, Twitter isn’t a waste of time if used properly.

The “Twitter” terms of service are pretty clear, and it’s easy to sign up. All the info can be found here:

Here’s an example of what my tweet may read:
