The #atozchallenge on Twitter: Are You Following @AprilA2Z

Last year one of my duties as a co-host was to support those who're tweeting their A to Z Challenge posts on Twitter.

With its limitation of 140 characters, Twitter can be a great medium to share links: it takes very little time, and reaches a wide audience.

So if you're on Twitter, and are thinking of signing up for the A to Z Challenge this 30th January, here's what you can do:

1. Follow the official A to Z Challenge id of twitter : @AprilA2Z

2. Tweet anything you want to say about A to Z Blogging challenge using the hashtag #atozchallenge

3. Considering retweeting posts by @AprilA2Z which are relevant to the challenge. After all, the more people who take part in the challenge, the better it is for all the participants!

4. If you make a blog post about the A to Z Challenge (I'm hoping some of you will, won't you?) make sure to tweet it with the #atozchallenge hashtag

5. Connecting with other A to Z Challenge participants on twitter will ensure that your posts have lots of visitors : so consider following not only the hosts (once they're announced coming Monday!), but also other blog-friends who say they'll participate.

If you have questions regarding A to Z challenge on Twitter, fire away in the comments.

And if you haven't joined Twitter yet, I can point you to Arlee Bird, the founder member of this A to Z Blogging Challenge, who joined last year (after a fair amount of poking), and now has more than 2000 followers!

I used to belong to twitter but it changed somewhere along the way.
I don't understand the new twitter.
S0 I'll think I'll stick to A to Z on blog.

Yep, I followed you last year! (I just tweeted a message about you to my over 7,500 followers.) Can't wait until April!

I'm the same, will follow AtoZ on blogger, I couldn't be bothered with Twitter.

Yes, I'm on good old Twitter and yes, I'm giving you the amazing delight of following you. And I RT your posts. As you know, despite my satire posts about your alphabet challenge, I have promoted you wonderful folks via my little known and oh so unassuming blog. More importantly. Are you following me on Twitter? :) And will you RT my posts?

If we got Lee to join Twitter, everyone should be on Twitter!

Tina said...

OK, ok, ok. I'll join. Alex is right, if Lee did, I'm the last hold out... Damyanti, I'll try to get this done right away so we can have it for the announcement...
