There. Someone said it.

Thanks to Kelli Russell Agodon for this great post describing the differences between Facebook and Twitter, and also noting the pros and cons of both social media sites as used by writers. From her post (click on the quote to link to the whole post):

So before we begin, let me get that out of way--

When you plan on writing, stay OFF of Facebook & Twitter. COMPLETELY!

While I do think these websites both have huge benefits to writers, they are also two huge time-sucks in the world that you can avoid by choice.

And here's the toughlove version on that-- If you go onto Twitter & Facebook and are complaining that you don't get/have enough time to write, then I need to be honest with you: it's *your* fault.
