Creative Writing and Social Media

In my personal life, social media has been an incredible tool, not only for putting my writing in front of readers, but also getting a good perspective on the various reactions it engenders. It can force a writer to look at the page differently. Counting characters and thinking talking points, headlines, pop culture references. Not always conducive to the most artistic writing, but it is an excellent avenue for exploring more communicative, and conversational creative writing techniques.
