Have you realised the power of your Twitter bio?
In just the last month, I've had more than ten people DM me to tell me that as a direct result of my Twitter Bio, they've gone on to search out more about my writing (and have subsequently gone on to buy my book.)
Here is my bio @KnightTrilogy: Bio Married to a handsome giant, mummy to a mud-puddle fairy. Writer of Dark Romance Fantasy / Fairytales. Otherwise completely normal.
Trying to distill your entire self and writing into 140 little characters is a challenge. I'm not saying by any means that mine is perfect, but it seems to be working and communicates broadly my life and writing.
Here is a good example of successful 'informative' style by @ABookVacation: Teacher, book lover, reviewer, and blogger. Reading is my hobby; I try to read one book per day and then post my review. I love fantasy, paranormal, YA, etc.
Here is a good example of successful 'personality' style by @allieburkebooks :
I'm a writer. A nerd. Music is a passion. I am currently in love with more than one fictional character. I love the rain. White lilies. Art. I love... you.
So in the rush of excitement to join the brilliant community that is twitter, how much time did you give to really crafting your bio? It seems that it is more important than maybe some of you relise.
If you have a twitter bio you think is a good example then please post it below to help inspire others.
