“Hi. I’m Sara, and I’m a social-media-phobic.”
In fact, up until six months ago, I loathed all forms of social media. So…
Why Did I Befriend the Twitterverse?
I’ll admit it: At ﬁrst, I only joined Twitter because I read somewhere that an author needs a social media presence. Begrudgingly – and oh so judgmentally – I created my proﬁle. For shame.
Please accept my apologies.
I came to you with shallow expectations. I feel diﬀerently, now.
With every roll of my eyes, I scorned your value.
With every troll I found, I disregarded genuine tweeters.
But you didn’t hold my attitude against me. You wooed me with your quick chuckles, welcoming writing community, and entertaining GIFs.
Twitter Vs. A Social-Media-Phobic
Although now I’m glad that I joined Twitter, as with all things, there are pros and cons.
What about you? Are you new to Twitter? Want to meet some awesome people?
Let me introduce you to my TOP 5 NICE TWITS I’ve met in the last six months.

Debbie Jones Warren (@DebbieJWarren)
Debbie is caring and encouraging.
I’ve especially enjoyed reading her personal stories on her blog: Above All Else.
Seriously, you should check it out. You’ll be surprised by her unique experiences and perspective.
Barb cracks me up! Her combination of joy and realism that she sends out into the world is a breath of fresh air.
Barb is a writer and blogger, and also has an exciting career as a 911 operator. She blogs about her job and life at https://onlybarb.blogspot.com/
Demi Edwards (@demi_writer)
Demi is a mum and a wife and writes middle-grade ﬁction.
I love following Demi’s tweets because she shares openly about the highs and lows of motherhood, writing, and working in the medical profession. She’s honest, she’s easy to relate to, and that makes me feel a little less alone in the world right now.
Alison Lewis (@AliLew8)
Alison is a wife, mother, educator, and writer. She’s sent me the most encouraging tweets when I’ve been down. She’s a gem. 🙂
Alison blogs about life, faith, and hope at https://asecretspring.com/
Who Knew the Twitterverse Could Be So Friendly?
So, there you have it. Just goes to show that this momma can still learn new tricks and make new friends. Who knew? Certainly, not me.
