Index of topics: Main Twitter Guide For Writers page. To go back to my blog for kidlit/YA writers and illustrators, see Inkygirl. You can find me on Twitter at @inkyelbows (focus: craft & biz of writing) and @DebbieOhi (chatty replies, Twitter chats).
Search the FAQ for entries containing:
A DM is a direct message sent from one Twitter account to another. It's not posted publicly.
Note that you can only send a DM to someone if they're following you, and that THEY can only send a DM to you if you're following them.
Too often (and I've made this mistake as well) I've seen people tweet to someone, "I can send you more info if you DM me your e-mail address" but only to have the other person post, "Um...I tried but I can't because you're not following me." Embarrassing for both parties.
