I’m sending my last tweet. I avoid places that manifest too much negative energy, and I’m afraid that may be the future of Twitter. This feels like the right time to leave—not that I ever tweeted much anyway. I’ve enjoyed tweets from fellow writers, but we can find each other on Facebook and Goodreads. In fact, I’m already connected with most of them this way.
If you’re reading this on Twitter and want to stay in touch, here are some options:
- Mastodon: I just joined, so I have no posts on the site yet. Still, I exist there, as email@example.com. I hope to have my blogs linked to Mastodon, once I figure out how to do that. There’s a bit of a learning curve for a low-tech soul like me.
- Follow my blogs directly at https://amberfoxxmysteries.com and https://everywhereindies.wordpress.com/.
- If you read my book reviews, you can follow me on Bookbub or on Goodreads .
- My blog posts also go to Goodreads and to my Facebook author page
- Blog posts even go to my Amazon author page. I’m not an Amazon-exclusive author, but for readers who buy books there, it’s another way to follow an author.
- If you only want news about special sales, my writing progress, and new releases, you can subscribe to my newsletter.
Looking at all those options, I feel ubiquitous. Which makes me quite comfortable with becoming inTwitterate.
Note: I don’t feel the need to migrate my Twitter contacts to Mastodon, but there are tools you can use to accomplish this before you actually leave Twitter. https://fedifinder.glitch.me/ and https://debirdify.pruvisto.org/

Just made the decision to do this myself. Now I’ve got to see if Mastodon crashes when I join it today. Will look for you on the friends/follow list when I do.
Now you’ve given me a reminder to keep logging in to Mastodon and learning my way around. It didn’t crash when I joined. The process went smoothly.
