There is more to Twitter than just connecting with friends and following thought leaders. As an author, this vast micro-blogging community can also be a means to connect with fellow writers from all over the world.

How Twitter Can Help Writers

Just as Twitter is meant to be a huge information distribution platform, so does it serve as a way for authors to find inspiration, build new ideas and engage with fellow authors who share their interests without having to physically meet.

Writers are generally reclusive individuals, so Twitter presents a highly viable platform to create symbiotic relationships and foster friendships.

You can get in touch with other writers in Twitterverse through hashtags, or keywords beginning with the number (#) symbol that are designed to bring conversations on the same topic under one thread. To engage in deeper conversations with other users, authors can also participate in tweet chats, twitter lists and tweetups.

Essential Hashtags For Authors

Here are some of the most relevant and widely used hashtags authors with Twitter accounts use to connect with fellow authors and the reading community, identify each other in terms of genre, get industry updates and jumpstart inspiration. Why, you can even communicate with publishing and writing superstars!
