  • As we go through wer're going to give you examples of how people are using twitter and also how you could be using it. And we're not going to limit it to libraries. We know you're a bunch of smart people and you'll be able to figure out ways it might translate for your particular institution. 
     
    The main ways we're going to show you Twitter is around these three things: 
    Connections
    Collaborations
    Conversations
    reference = conversation, etc
    [more here]
     
    vr esp as conversation
  • #9 twitter it
    twitter search
    AMY 
    go to live web and ask audience what they want to search for
  • GRPL  uses the  Twitter's search feature to locate people who are in the Grand Rapids area who tweet certain keywords. Words like "library," "GRPL," "reading," "book," and "Evergreen" which is the name of our new catalog. Once you do the search you can create RSS feeds that are updated whenever someone mentions the words. I then subscribe to the RSS feeds using Google Reader to periodically find new people, insert the library into conversations, and see what people are saying about the library."
