20 standout writers with creative Twitter bios

February 4, 2013 |  by  |  Social media exploration  |  , ,


Last year I shared a list of writers with eye-catching Twitter bios. Since then, I’ve discovered many more writer gems who grace us with their 140-character presence.

I can’t help myself. I’m sharing these 2013 standout writers because their Twitter bios caused me to nod my head, laugh aloud, or wish I could jump through the computer screen and meet them in person. Yes, they’re that awesome.

  1. What a cool post! Loved reading through everyone’s bios. And thanks for including mine! That was a fun surprise to start off my morning.

  2. I love these posts because they let me know about interesting people to follow.

  3. Sorry it took me so long to get my butt over here, but I was sicker than a dog with the flu!

    This is such a sweet post! Thank you so much for adding me to your list!

    I don’t suggest trying to jump through the computer screen, but if you’re ever in Richmond, Virginia, definitely give me a shout!

    {{{{hugsss}}} and thanks again!

  4. This article inspired me to update my own! It actually sounds much more interesting now that I know I don’t have to stick with a generic “I’m the author of bla bla bla… I write about…” Thanks, Crystalee!

  5. Love finding new writers to connect with. Off to check out all of these now 🙂
