So this episode I don’t have a guest, it’s just me, and I’m going to share with you 6 simple tips for using Twitter effectively as an actor. 

This year, I am making some changes to how I interact with my smartphone. 

I want to make at least a small dent in the time I spend on it, and I want to use it more consciously. 

I’ve turned off notifications for everything except calls, texts, and one or two messaging apps. 

I want to choose when I log into social media, rather than being pulled in by the endless pinging sounds on my phone. 

And I want to reduce the time I spend mindlessly scrolling social media.

So I thought I would share the tips I’ve picked up over the years to use Twitter more effectively, and more purposefully, as an actor.

In my OTHER job I’m a digital marketer, so as well as my own personal experience of making Twitter a better environment for myself as an actor, these tips are also infused with some basic marketing know-how. 

Oh, hey, I almost forgot to wish you a Happy New Year. 

It’s not been the most optimistic of beginnings, in fact it feels a bit like the starter pistol sounded and we faceplanted.

Which reminds me, the other reason there’s no guest this episode is that I just did not feel ready to engage with the outside world in time to organise a guest. 

Anyone else in that kind of mood?

Despite that, I remain optimistic that we can make 2021 a good year.

Tweet me and let me know how you’re doing.
