Become a Better Writer

If you want to find more clients, raise your rates, and make more money as a writer, you first need to focus on improving your skills.

There are several resources on Twitter to help you out with that, whether they’re creating and sharing articles on better writing, sharing tidbits and tips, or even new vocabulary.

Here are seven great Twitter accounts to follow for quality writing tips.


Perhaps people don’t read print as much anymore, but Writer’s Digest sure has adapted. Their Twitter account is a great resource for writing tips, blog posts about writing, and writing prompts to help writers get some practice.

Learn some new vocabulary along with a side of sass. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary’s Twitter account has certainly added a bit of personality into their content, making language fun.

MerriamWebster tweet

They share great content that goes over underused words, confusion between plurals, and even which form of a word to use when.

On top of that, they share a new Word of the Day every day, helping you to increase your vocabulary, and therefore, your writing.

Even the best writers sometimes mix up the correct word form every now and then, and @writing_tips is a great Twitter account to help you know which form to use when.

They tweet out links for word forms like “math vs. maths” or “while vs. whilst” so writers can check to see when a certain word form needs to be used.

Similar to Merriam-Webster, the OED is another great dictionary Twitter account to follow. The OED just has a bit less sass than Merriam-Webster, but is just as informational.

They share a word of the day each day, so be sure to stop back regularly to up your vocabulary game.

OED tweet

Not only that, but they’ll occasionally jump on trending topics or events to offer assistance with niche vocabulary.

For example, for the Rugby World Cup 2019, the OED Twitter account spent the day tweeting out rugby terminology and their definitions so that newbies to the sport could still understand the game and support their team!

They even tagged the #RWC2019 hashtag and added each one of the definitions into a thread to make them easy to find all at once.

Connect With Other Writers

Connecting with other writers can also be a way to improve your profession. You can talk shop on writing skills, learn different hiring techniques and it can also be a great way to gain confidence in raising your rates.
