Twubs New Free Tool to Give Authors More Exposure



Twubs.com is an online tool I know most authors aren't using. The idea is to put your dibs on hashtags you use frequently to promote. 
I just registered three hashtags that I use for my Twitter promotions with them. The idea may sound insignificant but you get a page of your own where you can describe your book, include a cover or headshot, etc. And we all know that kind of thing helps with exposure and search engine optimization.
Using Twubs is a little like registering your own trademarks. If you want a test run, check out the three I just registered



http://twubs.com/MovieReviews/info (where I do mini reviews that often point out writing-related techniques).

While you’re at Twubs, please like and tweet. You can also find other tweeters to follow on Twitter, tweeters who cover topics similar to yours.
