So much has been written about Twitter – especially in the last year – So I decided to put together a link post of Twitter articles that may be helpful to musicians. The advice and wisdom in the following links is relevant to novice and expert Twitter users alike. Please note that great stuff can be found in the comments sections, as well as the body of these posts.

Please feel free to leave links in our comment sections to Twitter specific posts that we have neglected to include.

A Note About Mashable:

Many of the links provided come from what I believe to be the ultimate social media resource: Mashable. Tons of informative, insightful, and useful stuff can be found at Mashable…and not just about Twitter. These guys are on top of practically every new trend and development in social media. Big Props go to all the “Mashies” at Mashable.
