All That Twitters: Gems and Jewels of Writers and Readers

Pink Royal FuturaTwitter can be such a treasure trove of wondrous finds for the wayward writer. We find the sparkling minds of so many authors to converse with; we are greeted with so many jewelled ideas splashed about in a kaleidoscopic wonderland.

Quips and tips abound to aid muse-enslaved writers as we weave on warp and weft tales to titillate and tantalize the imagination of ourselves and those beloved readers who take our hands and journey with us.

These are some of the gems I found by the amazing individuals who populate Twitter:
