Want to use Twitter to find freelance writing work? It’s easier than you’d think. Here’s how you can find freelance writing gigs and make a little extra income if you want. And who doesn’t, huh?

How to Find Freelance Writing Jobs

I use Hootsuite to manage my Twitter accounts. You can also use Tweetdeck or www.twitter.com if you want. Hootsuite makes things a little easier and I’ll show you how.

Using Hootsuite To Find Freelance Writing Jobs

You have a few more options here.

  • Login to Hootsuite.
  • Click Add Stream. A stream is a ‘news feed’ based on the criteria you setup.
  • Select Search.
  • Enter ‘freelance writing’ for an exact match.
  • Add other keywords to narrow the search, e.g. your location, skills, tools.
  • Click Create Stream. This adds a tab to your page. Drag it over to the left so you don’t have to scroll.
