This Can't Be Right...

I've just posted a review of a book.  Did the usual run through the social networking, then did my equally usual check to see what the starting hits where. 

Usually it's between 20-40, generally from that StumbleUpon listing.

But this happened.

Bear in mind that this is no more than five minutes after I posted it.  Is that right?  There's no background glitch?


Each time I refresh it, more are coming.  Lots more. Wtf?

 

Edit:  SOLVED!   Cory Doctorow reTweeted me. :D  Bless him!

You wrote a fantastic review. I'm not surprise the author, himself, tweeted you on. This is great. You are a marvel to watch.

Wonder what your next great viral-project will be.

Thank you. :)


I just enjoyed the book and wanted him to know.  It's a bit of a thank you for him writing it.  This is just a happy moment of indirect social networking!

Yes it is possible. Many authors use a Google Search function (I can't remember exactly what it is) and then it automatically includes it on their site. I have a book blog and the posts often show up on their sites. Writers often write comments as well. It's a great deal of fun to be in that niche!

Nothing "indirect" about it. This IS social networking. Bravo!

Digby - do you mean Google Alerts? You can set it up for certain keywords, so it emails you a link every time someone writes about them.

Just to run the circle - you can use Google Alerts to create Tweets using Dlvr.it

Digby - That may be how he catches some things, but on this occasion I'd cc:ed him on the Tweet.  He was actually there, because we had a little conversation via Twitter afterwards.

Achim - I really should note the 'networking' part of that phrase, shouldn't I?  LOL

Chaz - I'd not heard of that.  I'll check it out. 

CapstoneTrends - Thank you very much. <3
