Wouldn't it be wonderful if I was so interested in your artwork that I called your studio every 30 minutes just to ask, "What are you doing now?"
How refreshing that would be! I would know when you were working . . . and when you weren't. When things were going well....and when they were going badly. When you started a new painting....and when you finished each one. When you were drinking your coffee. When you were depressed. When you were happy. I would love to know when you were stuck in your studio waiting for the plumber.....boy that would really help you sell me your artwork.
What? You think it would be annoying for me to call you every 30 minutes?
I agree, it would be annoying, ridiculous and boring for you and for me.
What I have just described above, dear artists, is the premise of Twitter.
Unfortunately, I keep seeing artists who seem to think that Twitter is some sort of revolutionary marketing tool that will help them sell art. It won't.
Why ANY artist would think that sending a "Twit" is a better use of their time than creating art is totally beyond me.
Software Craftsman and Art Fanatic
PS - Here's my advice: Whenever you have the urge to "Twit" . . . . paint, sculpt, sketch or photograph instead .... your collectors and the world will thank you for it.
PPS - Unless of course, you really WANT to avoid doing the things that really matter . . . in that case, Twitter is a perfect waste of time.
