    26. 26. S m ay u mrIf timely communication, engagement, relationshipsand conversation are considered of value to academicactivities then, if used effectively, platforms such asTwitter can have a marked impact.But if we think of a role of academic work to engagewith people, to spark conversations and debate, pulltogether specialists in a field to network we find thevalue of social media. Social media pulls insiders out,and allows outsiders in to organizations, so that theycan create a more meaningful relationship betweenthemselves and their academic work andcommunities.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYP-wBaqQAI and @KTDigital
