Anyone On Twitter?

Posted by: Gayle Utter on 09/28/2009 - 2:26 PM

I noticed the thread for "Anyone on Facebook" (which is great btw - go there if you havent) and wondered if anyone out there uses Twitter.

Twitter is my new favorite thing and I have it linked to my Facebook. I didn't understand Twitter until I downloaded the application "TweetDeck" and now it all makes sense to me.

So if you are on Twitter - please consider following me. I'll follow you back!

I've gone on twitter like twice and I keep getting followers.... makes no sense to me... why follow a guy that has 1 or 2 tweets , twits, tweety birds or whatever they are - per year or more lol???

I've been on Twitter for a while but only log in when I have something to tweet and the time to do it. I've posted 155 tweets to date.
I haven't tried to determine how much traffic it has generated for either my blog or web site.

For the curious, I tweet at

I am following now everybody here ... naturefineart. I don't get it either Rob. I will try to download "TweetDeck" ... may be that will shed some light on it :-)

My best, Juergen


Posted by: Gayle Utter on 09/28/2009 - 8:10 PM

So I've looked you all up and am following!

Yes Juergen, the tweetdeck software makes twitter into a spread sheet style so you can see all the different uses of Twitter. I think you'll understand it better then. If not let me know, I'll try to help explain in more detail.

cheers, Gayle

I found you! Following you now too :)


Posted by: Gene Gregory on 09/30/2009 - 10:24 PM

I don't want to know anything else...... such as how to twitter. My left brain is running on over-load & my right brain is in reserve. I just want to paint. : )


Posted by: V Holecek on 09/30/2009 - 10:32 PM

I had a twitter account...I just couldn't be arsed with it. I unloaded it around the same time that I closed up my myspace profile (that's another story altogether...)


Posted by: Jon Baldwin Art on 09/30/2009 - 10:48 PM

I am @raidersabbath.. thought I would never do that. Also doing the twitpic thing.. that is how I have sold a couple or should I say assist in selling a couple paintings on here.

I still don't know how or what to "tweet".


Posted by: Mary Claire on 09/30/2009 - 11:11 PM



Posted by: Mary Claire on 09/30/2009 - 11:12 PM

Don't know how to paste a link in actual message.


Posted by: Gayle Utter on 10/04/2009 - 10:33 AM

Twitter is definitely not for everyone. To make twitter effective, you really have to work it. I'm gaining more and more traffic and attention each day because of twitter. It is definitely my new favorite of them all.


Posted by: Kristi Taylor on 10/04/2009 - 2:51 PM

I like twitter too.

I tweet everytime I add a new design.


Posted by: Jenny Armitage on 10/04/2009 - 6:45 PM I tweet a few times a day, usually about my art.


Posted by: Steve Hester on 10/04/2009 - 8:07 PM

V Holecek,, quote "I had a twitter account...I just couldn't be arsed with it. I unloaded it around the same time that I closed up my myspace profile (that's another story altogether...) "

I've been on the net sense Al Gore invented it. I've had three different myspaces (art, music and friends). All three deleted last year. Before that was message boards,, before that was MSN groups. I have a facebook account just for friends and family. I can't keep up with the sites I check on now,,LOL! BTW not throwing off on twitter, It's just not something I have the time to figure out.

I am on twitter, I've already added most of the people in this discussion. If I missed you I will add anyone who

Posted by: Kristi Taylor on 10/04/2009 - 8:46 PM

Somthin is up...that second paragraph on my above post isn't mine and I can't edit it...

Posted by: Christie Arms on 10/04/2009 - 11:08 PM

I just open the twitter account earlier today and now I'm following you Gayle! far I only got 3 followers and ya'll welcome to follow me too! Have a great night! ;o)


Posted by: Kristi Taylor on 10/05/2009 - 12:38 PM

Very odd....still see a superlong hyperlink of text I didn't write in my first post....guess I accidentally hijacked someone elses - sorry about that!


Posted by: Tony Murray on 10/05/2009 - 2:03 PM

I heard YOUTUBE, FACEBOOK and TWITTER were all joining up together...they are calling it "YOU TWIT FACE"

We have a combination of Two accounts, and which total over 40,000 followers in one year.
We now have a third one, started a week ago...

We Use TweetAdder to BUILD and Manage our accounts. Sure, there are FREE programs which do some of what TweetAdder does. So we prefer to use one, instead of quite a number to do the same thing TweetAdder does......
Have found it much more efficient, to use one program then 4-6 and the best part of TweetAdder is the ability to build a TARGETED list of followers.
People who like to look at artwork or photography and so are more potential buyers.
PLUS, one sale we made the first month, paid for TweetAdder. We had not sold a single piece until we began building a targeted list of followers.

Many on twitter just follow everyone, who follows them, then they wonder why Twitter does not work effectively for them.
Looking at followers of some artists, find they are in many countries. Many of them are in places like Nigeria, where there are a lot of scammers. Others where they do not use English so they may not be able to read English tweets.

Finding people who will ReTweet YOU or resend links for your artwork, is the name of the game. We ahve over 1,500 followers who resend out tweets to their followers. Most all have over 1000 followers, and some have as many as 120,000 which dramatically in creases the number of potential buyers.
Following artists from FAA, may get them to retweet yours, if you retweet their work. But if all their followers are all other artists, doubt it will lead too SALES.

Getting a list of followers who are Decorators, Gallery owners, those who are interested in the TYPE of artwork you produce can lead to sales. Getting lists of people interested in Sports, may help you sell images of the sports they find of interest. Building a list of followers who are interested in your type of art, by getting followers who follow Twitter accounts of Museums who have similar works on exhibit, etc, TweetAdder does this kind of lead gathering best.

TweetAdder can do all of this and much more, too much to write about, but you can find more at this link:

Just Follow us, to see how we Promote: and or

Perhaps some of these ideas will help you, before long.

All this is new to me and I'm learning about Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and how to get the art out there for people to see. I have to try to find the time to do all this networking and still have time to paint.

I'm at

If you use google's url shortener when posting links in your tweets (to cut down on using characters in your tweet), its free and tracks how many people click the link and from where.

do Twitter likes show on each art page or is that just to add art likes to Twitter, on other sites the Twitter likes show up


Posted by: Kristia Adams on 04/24/2014 - 2:15 PM

I am. My handle is @Jeremy_Nash. What's yours? I too had to learn from tweetdeck but now use the app for my iphone. I love it and it's a great way to get your art out for like minded people.
