  31. 31. In their own words (tweets) As a current student I find that the value of the twitter feed is the instant access to information for safety and fun facts... ...but also being able to interact and spread that information without worrying about email lists, spam, etc. Umm I think Twitter is byfar the fastest way to receieve information, ie-> The Death of Michael Jackson I found out by Twitter before any email or Newscast had been made, so for Missouri s&t I think if they want to inform people quickly they can easily
  32. 32. In their own words (tweets) “The most value of the twitter acct is i can get updates about my future college and the FB site is that i can get even more info about S&T” “I mostly use social networking for keeping in touch with my friends, so being able to interact with Missouri S&T on Twitter made it seem more personal, like I wasn't just a face in the crowd. Using Twitter to contact my future college was also very convenient, as I'm constantly engaged in it thanks to my iPhone and other technologies.”
