Workshop exercise: if you do not already have a Twitter account, establish one. Find at least thirty people to follow who you would like to be reading your blog. Tweet some posts, and tag others in the tweets. If you do not wish to be on Twitter, then experiment with creating a social media narrative using Storify.
