For the longest time I avoided Twitter. With Facebook, Tumblr, and a blog, I really didn't need anything else to distract me from what's most important: writing.
Turns out, Twitter is great.
Not only do I get to read some great advice from literary agents, editors, and authors, but I can find out about contests I never would have known existed. Like Pitch Wars and PitchMas, both great ways to try to get a manuscript noticed.
So here's to Twitter.
