20 clever writers with eye-catching Twitter bios

20 clever writers with eye-catching Twitter bios

 

I’ve become such an advocate of Twitter. As a word-based social platform, sweet tweets simply speak to me. You can use Twitter to curate knowledge, instant news, and professional content. As my colleague and mentor @adamcgunn likes to say, “Facebook is where you share silly stuff with the people closest to you. Twitter is where you share your best, professional content with people you hardly know.”

The more I use it, the more I #loveit.

Even if you’re not on Twitter, you can still appreciate creative word wrangling in 140 characters or less. On Twitter, your bio is your key tool to share who you are, what you’re about, attract a following, and find new friends.  Naturally, writers have an edge in this space. The following are impressive writers I’ve found in my Twitter explorations over the past year. They’ve inspired me in unique ways, and I appreciate their love of words. Mind you, these are NOT ranked – each writer has their own unique flavor, so I opted for ABC order. Gander through, and you’ll see some wordbliss! For your convenience, I’ve hyperlinked so you can easily follow them too. And without further ado…

@AnnieGreen14   A wannabe writer trying to write that novel I’m sure is in me. 

@ArchangelAnders   I wrote a book. It has vampires that don’t sparkle, redneck zombies, jinn pimps and a normal guy caught in the middle. Further, I have a cat, Mr. Hate.

@BareFoot_Writer  And the words, they flow through my finger tips, covering the white pages with black. Creator of adult fairy tales with a heathy dose of magical realism.

@Brenna_Lauren I’m a writer. There’s a serenade being sung, a stranger just smiled at his soul-mate and somewhere, someone just fell in love.
