Thanks, my latest thread on Twitter:Congratulations on your 500 followers. I know there are more out there, desperate to learn
Hi @MattLHow's this going Andy?
Thanks @MTF.I think it's a good move to focus on "helping people" vs being Google Ads guy. The second puts you in a very narrow, prison-like niche with Google being your overlord.
If I wanted to become an expert in self-publishing, I would of course talk about Amazon but I wouldn't brand myself a "self-publishing Amazon expert." Better to focus on the entire niche because sooner or later everything will be replaced by something new.
This is gold. @Andy Black is an unofficial mentor to everyone on this forum.My goodness. I totally didn't expect to find such gems this morning on Twitter.
@MJ DeMarco @MTF @Lex DeVille ... curious what you think of these tips on writing beautifully.
From the same guy:
I'd have never predicted Twitter would teach me (or at least motivate me) to become a better writer...
TL;DR ... I guess about 30 mins spread throughout the day?How much time do you approximately spend each day on Twitter?
I have 185,000 Twitter followers. A tweet of Further content will get me around 20 clicks. Twenty bucks on a boosted Facebook post of the same content to 5,165 people who like the Further page gets even less.
But a link in my newsletter? More than 2,000 clicks from an email list of less than 7,500.
I stopped growing my Twitter account as I found it pointless. (For me personally)Do you ever link your tweets to any URLs? Do you have any click-through data?
The reason I'm asking is this:

And that's from 2017 so today it's probably performing even worse.
I found whenever you post an outside link etc, Twitter punishes you and you get basically no engagement as they hide the content.
Sounds like Facebook.
I don't know if any current popular social media sites are worth it. Seems like the new platforms already start by making it hard to promote anything outside of it (like Instagram with no active links in posts and only one link in bio; same with TikTok as far as I know).
