HELP needed: Twitter Mega-Novice

I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of Twitter and couldn’t get the appeal – I used to actively be irritated by some Facebook ‘status updating’ habits (Do I need to know when you’re arguing with your boyfriend? No…whatever happened to not “airing dirty laundry in public”?!). I thought that Twitter was essentially this element of Facebook boiled down. Apparently, I was wrong – whoever would have guessed?

But my curiosity has gradually been piqued, particularly by bloggers who mention book clubs, read-alongs and other such bookish activities. So I finally signed up and thought I would give it a go!

Turns out, it’s confusing! I have no idea how I’m supposed to find all these lovely activities, never mind get involved…so this is a humble plea to those more experienced than I in “tweeting”…any advice would be lovely 🙂 And any recommendations of stuff I can join or get involved in on a book-type theme would be even lovelier!!
