  • Mashable defines it nicely:  “A social networking service is an online service, platform, or site that focuses on facilitating the building of social networks or social relations among people who, for example, share interests, activities, backgrounds, or real-life connections.”
  • Twitter fear
  • Twitter addiction
  • In this sense what Twitter represents is a Stream.. “ only things that are happening now are what matters” (Gruzd et al, 2011)
  • This makes twitter an ideal forum for real-time discussion – hence the growing prevalence of twitter chats
  • So you are tapping into a really active local community in Ireland – real value for networking. Ireland loves Twitter!
  • #Don’t #overuse #them (<3 per tweet) Join an existing conversation if possible Check it’s not already in use Be obvious and consistent! #ff : quality not quantity
