I'll be the first to admit-- I refrained from getting Twitter back in college when ALL my friends got it. I still struggle with social media. I sort of have an Instagram, had Snap Chat for a week or two then deleted it, and fought getting a Twitter. Its 'just another thing to learn.' I also sound significantly older than I am, but its just my preference. But ever think about writing?
Grow your social media platform. Even if its awkward. Twitter is a huge resource and platform to meet other writers and get awesome tips. (If you're looking for agents-- they post tips all the time)
This list might be weak but its just a list of # or events on Twitter than I found extremely helpful.
#MSWL Manuscript Wish List --> agents, editors, and publishers use this for concepts they want
#Askagent--> ask a question and hopefully, an agent answers
#Askeditor--> same goes, for an editor
#RWChat-- Romance Writers chat on Sundays 4PM PST, 7PM EST --> connect with other romance writers with various prompts
#chance2connect --Writing group of all genres for writers to connect on the first Tuesday of the month
#CPmatch-- want a critique partner? beta readers? Follow this thread
#Carinapitch-- pitch your hook to editors at Carina Press, an online imprint of Harlequin
#Pitmad--pitch your hook to agents on set dates-- if they like it, submit your query
#WIP (Work in Progress)
As I said before, this is just the surface of the Twitter world but it has helped me tremendously. I'm learning how to navigate in this publishing world and I wish I would've known about the benefits of Twitter years ago.
Know of any others and care to share?
