Presented by Anjum Najmi and Ephraim Freese at the UNT Digital Scholarship Co-Operative's Day of DH 2013. The presenters discussed how to get started in Twitter, described the basics of establishing an account, following others, developing followers, writing Tweets, and using hashtags (#), and discussed practical uses for the social media platform for academics and professionals. This workshop was intended for beginners who are curious about Twitter and looking to get started, but we encouraged more advanced users to attend to brush up on their practice and share their knowledge and experience.

This event was cosponsored by the UNT Libraries' Digital Projects Unit and the Digital Scholarship Co-Operative for the international Day in the Life of Digital Humanities (Day of DH).
