Madalyn Sklar “Twitter Smarter”

The following represents my notes taken from Billy Grisack’s podcast conversation with Madalyn Skylar of #gogirls #ggchat

View twitter as the cocktail party of social media
*Keep it simple and to the point.
*You only have 140 characters

Follow Trends and go to where the audience is
*Best engagement for musicians is on twitter
**But you have to ENGAGE in two way conversations
**Fans don’t use Facebook to discover new music

Hashtags
*Use hashtags so people can follow you on twitter but avoid hashtags on facebook
*Limit to three hashtags per post on twitter
*Instagram can use more

Don’t just Broadcast –
*If someone follows you, don’t just send them a link to your music
*Do ask how they heard of you, what interests them
