While you may have many followers, it is likely only a percentage of these followers interact directly with you. Photographers can use Twitter in a variety of ways to help expand both their network of fellow artists and their reach to a broader audience that connects with their work. Linking Twitter to your other social media platforms is recommended, and mindful updates from your biogs to Twitter will help build your following. Photographers can also benefit greatly by leveraging the ability to post images and to engage with a large community of fellow artists and supporters of their work. People come to Twitter for conversation and people are following you to learn more about both what you do and who you are. Twitter allows you to instantly share pictures using a mobile device. Keeping these points in mind will help a photographer build a valuable Twitter network that satisfies both the need to connect with fellow professionals and the need to better understand followers who relate to their art. Understand who is connecting to you on Twitter and why, so you can incorporate their preferences in your Twitter photos.
