Authors: Grow Your Twitter Tribe with These Tips

How to Grow Your Twitter Tribe by Frances Caballo

Grow Your Twitter Tribe with Targeted Hashtags

A couple of years ago, I wrote a two-part series on hashtags authors could use to mingle with other writers on Twitter, find readers, and grow your Twitter tribe. Let’s look at that list and had several more to it.

But first let me explain a method you can use to find readers. In one word that method is hashtags. I would use the following hashtags for that purpose:

#BookWorm

#GreatReads

#MustRead

#Novel

#WhatToRead

#Bibliophile

#Reader

To attract readers to your tweets, add one of these:

#Kindle

#eBook

#KindleBargain

#Kobo

#Nook

#FreebieFriday

#BookGiveaway

#Giveaway

#Free

Use genre-related hashtags, such as #mystery, #thriller, #memoir, #nonfiction, #fiction, #YA, #NewAdult, #shortstory, #poetry, #crime, #DarkFantasy, #dystopian, #erotica, #romance, #HistFic
