Twitter is one big social media platform and most authors today are having one thing or the other to do with this 140 characters platform.

Chances are you are also on Twitter trying to find your target book audience and sell your books.

Until some months ago when I interviewed an author friend who has mastered Twitter for attracting his target book audience, I never counted Twitter as one platform I need to spend time on.

Years ago when I wrote my first three books, I spent months on Twitter trying to get people to buy my books and I did lot of wrong things over there just to get people to buy my three crappy books.

That never worked until I stopped, abandoned my Twitter account and commit myself into figuring out the best way to write better books and sell them as well.

Twitter as I have learned from my friend over the last two month is one of the best way to reach your target book audience and get them to visit your author website and blog.

As to almost every marketing strategy or tactic, there are the wrongs ways to go about getting the attention of your target audience and turn them into your loyal book fan and follower and there are also the right ways to use Twitter to find and attract your target book audience.
