Twitter has launched a new section of its site: Twitter for Musicians and Artists. It aims to encourage artists to get tweeting, while providing some best-practice examples of how musicians are using the service. “A Twitter connection tells fans how much you appreciate them, and it also enables you to tailor your messages. The fact is, Twitter provides more authenticity and creative control than any other online medium. Tweets come straight from you, and go right to your followers all over the world, in real-time.” Tips include how to use hashtags, why replying to fans is a good idea, the benefits of running fan-interviews on Twitter, posting photos and live-tweeting big events. It also provides some advice on how to run band accounts on Twitter with multiple members.
