Talking to an author friend about tweets I found out an ingenious way to make a tweet from an excel spreadsheet. In the world of awesome sauce and I can do everything and be everywhere this was ingenious.
Here is where I dispel people -- when I don't schedule my tweets, they don't happen. So what's worse? Not tweeting at all or scheduling? I can tell you that when I don't tweet it's not good. I think of witty things at 2 AM, but you're not going to be awake at that hour to see it are you? Not unless you're a late night writer like me. So, I schedule my tweets.
What my friend did was take an excel spreadsheet and in column A created a formula. In column B she writes her tweet and the Characters remaining show up in column A. Here is what the formula looks like:
So let me show you what it looks like:
ACTION ITEM: Try the code if you want to keep track of tweets!
My efforts are to make this a learning blog where writers can see the flip side of publishing. If you have comments that will improve your experience or have a certain topic you'd like discussed, please contact me through email - HERE.
