I shared this on Twitter recently, but thought I'd post it here too. If Twitter sort of baffles you (it did me at first) and you're not sure where to start, try finding a chat.
A Twitter chat works like this: A group of people with a similar interest (writing, horses, etc.) all hang out on Twitter at a preset time. There is usually a predetermined topic and someone who keeps things moving. It's difficult to explain, but suffice it to say, it's a good way to find others who have similar interests as you and can be a great networking tool.
Here's a list of 300+ Twitter chats (sadly, this is now defunct) which occur on various days and times. Here are alternate resources:
