Using Twitter to Promote Your Music

First off, what is Twitter?

Twitter is a microblogging site that allows users to post status updates with a 140-character limit. This is useful for artists because they can build an online following and provide their fans with quick updates about upcoming shows and releases. Twitter also allows fans to communicate with their favorite artists in a non-formal format. As an up-and-coming rapper, it is important to provide potential fans insight into who you are and what you're about. Twitter makes that easy.

High-profile artists such as The Game, Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, Eminem and Drake use Twitter to keep fans in the loop about their lives and music. Twitter is also a useful way to provide fans with download links to new songs or mixtapes

To create a Twitter account, simply point your browser to and follow the simple instructions to create an account. It is important when choosing your Twitter name to make sure that it is something recognizable and easy to remember. Luckily, you can change your Twitter username as often as you'd like. Keep in mind that doing so might make it more difficult for fans to find you, though!
