Now that I've been on Twitter for a year, I have learned that people who tweet with humor and wit are a lot more fun to follow. The wittiest tweeters are also rewarded with more followers than staid and boring Twitterers.
This means that we She Writers have a leg up on Twitter. We come to the world's largest water cooler with our pens to hand and wit at the ready.
If you want to rule Twitter, even the most innocuous experience in daily life can be an opportunity to show your writer's chops. A trip to Starbucks or a stupid meeting can be the stuff of greatness.
Some people are born funny. Others just work at it. So if at first you don't succeed, by all means, do what you do in your daily writing practice. Try again. One of my favorites, @rexhuppke, hits more than he misses on a regular basis. Why? Because he writes and rewrites.
I keep a list of Twit Wits so I can get a humor fix on the occasional down day.
