  • ....mainly by the people that we make connections with...   Mentionmap of AleXNetLit CHATPOD LINK: AlexNetLit - fictional persona (by NLCOP) is just getting started on Twitter. Her connections grow as she makes new [valued] connections. You can know more about her and how she helps professionals understand social media in the first Network Literacy CoP. CHATPOD LINK:
  • So since the value of Twitter = value of your connections, finding people is important.   This can take time to build your followers list (especially if you are new - or have few connections on Twitter that you know of....)   You can use directories like wefollow,  CHAT POD LINK: but often times directories point to people with huge followers potential interaction (and value) can be limited if this is mostly the types of people you follow.
  • Twitter will also give you ideas of who to follow...many times these are good suggestions, but this can take time to build
  • Hashtags are a way people can come together around an interest/topic/event CHATPOD LINK: AlexNetLit - fictional persona (by NLCOP) is just getting started on Twitter.

  • Serendipity. Bob Bertsh of NDSU talked about this in the first Network Literacy CoP meeting. By tweeting with a hashtag, you can immerse yourself in a interactive space in much the same way you would at a conference or event. You can tweet with multiple hashtags and weave discussion between multiple (in this case two groups (CESValue + Minnesota) of interest through a single tweet INSERT CHATPOD LINK:   In this CESValue example - a tag to describe the great work being done across Cooperative Extension.....anyone can express this value (no clearing house is needed to do so).
  • The hashtag gathers the tweets into one thread. MUExtension North Carolina Extension MSU Extension eXtension Military Families Vince Verbeke on behalf of Penn State. The CESValue hashtag can continually demonstrate the value one story at a time.
  • ..Hashtags are used in many ways. Twitter Hashtags, a # sign followed by a keyword, can be used in several different ways (and some to be thought of yet). Cause, Chat/Meetup, Backchannel....Sometimes these 3 different ways to use a hashtag when an event leads people to a cause or a scheduled chat just doesn’t want to end because it’s so beneficial to the participants
