in Follow Friday

Today’s Follow Friday recommendation is @thegearheart. There are people out there who are criminally under followed. Now I realize that not everyone wants a thousand plus follows and I respect that. Still, when you’ve got someone as talented as Alex White running around on Twitter, you’d hope that he’d be a little closer.

“But wait,” I hear you say, “who is Alex White and what is The Gearheart?”

Well I’m glad you asked. @thegearheart is the Twitter account associated with Alex’s podcast of the same name. It’s got elements of noir, steampunk, adventure fiction, and fantasy. Like a lot of works in the podcast fiction universe it not only defies niches it laughs in their faces. This project is not all he does though. He’s also an accomplished artist and has released an album that contains an original score that he wrote and produced.

When it comes to his Twitter feed, Alex and I have a lot in common. He’s a conversationalist. While he uses this feed primarily to release updates about the podcast work, he’s all about the interaction. I think that’s key for any artist who uses social media. Make sure you are more than a commercial for your product.

So, with one more quality tweeter added to your list, make sure that you have a safe and happy New Year’s Eve, however you chose to celebrate it!
