How Then, Should We Tweet?

Hello, Twitter friends!

Tomorrow morning, I am giving a Twitter Tutorial to the publicity team here at Tyndale. I’d love some feedback from you about how we, as a publisher, can use Twitter to its best potential.

So what can we do to make Twitter work for us? What are some things we should change? What are we doing well? What are some good ways we can use Twitter and social media to help promote our authors and our Tyndale brand?

Any suggestions for using Twitter in the world of publishing are welcome! And if you’re not following us on Twitter yet, our handle is @TyndaleHouse. If you want to follow me and send me some suggestions too, find me @christywong.

Thanks in advance for your help!
