A few months back, I took the plunge and started Twittering. You can follow me on Twitter – see right hand panel of this blog for TS tweets. I like it far better than Facebook (which leaves me cold) because it’s more about having the global conversation that The Cluetrain Manifesto talked about back in 1999 (has it really been 10 years since this great book was published?).
I don’t think I’m using Twitter to its full advantage. I dabble in it, carrying on about something, have a conversation with Twitter friends about MasterChef, that sort of thing. But as I’m about to take on a consulting gig that will require me to know more about Twitter, I have been researching.
And I came across this great site that offers up 100 ways to use Twitter in the library. It’s mind-boggling really what you can do with Twitter. I’ve now discovered tweetparty, which helps to create Twitter groups; TweetScan, where you type in keywords and get tweets that match your keyword emailed to you (how cool is that!); and you should check out all the libraries and publishers on Twitter.
