Every now and again I am going to dedicate a blog to showing you how Art Works and Artists are shown and discussed on-line.
Today we are going to dip our toes into the swirling waters of.... TWITTER

Advice: Twitter can be overwhelming so if you want to give it a go make sure you think carefully about the subject matter and/or people you want to follow. I only follow people and organisations tweeting about art. This is one source for the information I use in the blog. Twitter is absolutley the best way to keep up to date with what emerging artists are doing. It is also a wonderful way to keep up with people who are discussing some of the great masterpieces and well known artists.
Next time I have a Twitter Blog I will talk to you about hashtags.
