With only 140 characters, there’s no room for fluff. Twitter helps me peel away the unnecessary stuff in my thoughts/messages/ideas/copy. It has made me a better writer, thinker and presenter.

Thanks for the mining tips.

I found YOU on Twitter, Lorraine; so I’m already ahead on points! Your articles and kind comments and RTs are a constant source of happiness. Many thanks! P. :)

Making your point within seconds is what copywriting has always been about, so for me Twitter’s a trip to the writing gym. I follow a lot of professional writers, and people who simply write well, and love to see what they do with so little space. And I love the instant feedback. When you watch being re-tweeted over and over (not just your own) it sharpens your instincts for what excites. And when a tweet sinks without a trace, you also take note of what bores.

And for someone who often works alone, it’s office banter with the ability to dismiss anyone that gets on your nerves.
