WHAT IS TWITTER?
Twitter is a real-time social networking service and microblogging service that enables users to send and read text-based posts which are up to 140 characters long.
Bands and musicians can create a Twitter account and posts messages for their followers to read. Fans can easily “follow” a band or musician and have their messages, aka “Tweets”, appear on their feed.
The service allows users to send public messages, for all their followers to see, or direct messages, aimed at a specific person.
With over 300 million users, Twitter is the perfect place to connect with and find new fans.
Twitter provides a way for bands and musicians to communicate instantly with their fans including making last minute announcements such as show cancellations, or tour dates.
With the popularity of the service increasing, its almost essential for any band and musician to have a Twitter account.
