Tweetcamp:
Twitter Basic Training
Today’s Goals
• You will better understand social media, with
Twitter as a prime example
• You will see, share applications for your work
• You will leave with a Twitter account and feel
comfortable using the platform
• You will be aware of resources for further
answers and training
Twitter vs. Facebook
•Facebook is primarily for strengthening
existing connections (or reconnecting)
with your friends.
•Twitter enables you to connect with
people who have common interests. For
the friends you don’t know yet.
Twitter vs. Blogs
• Twitter is a micro-blogging platform.
• Limited length reduces writer’s/artist’s block
• Blogs provide opportunity for more thoughtful
reflection and development
•Tweeting = great way to take notes on a live
event AND spread word about it
•Blog = platform for review/synthesis
• Twitter = great for spreading word about posts
5 Reasons Twitter is Better than Email
• “Brevity is the soul of wit” - and of Twitter
• No expectation to read and respond to everything
• Conversations open and discoverable
• Direct messages can reach recipients with priority and
privacy
• Blocking or unfollowing punishes abuses

Dr. Richard Berger and
UT Ligament Split Tear
Jayson Werth’s experience
USA Today
Last Friday
3031031-9
Less than 24 hours after my initial appointment, I not
only had a new diagnosis - a UT split tear - but had
surgery to correct the problem. As I write this, my
right arm is in a festive green, but otherwise
annoying cast. The short-term hassle, however,
should be more than worth the long-term gain - the
potential for a future without chronic wrist pain. A
future, that without Twitter and those in the medical
community willing to experiment with new
communications tools, might not exist for me.

UT Split Repair Procedures
Don’t Consider Social Media in Isolation
• Not a silver bullet
• Seek synergy with existing means of
communication
• Necessary but likely not sufficient
• Need to justify NOT using social media
Building “Tweet Cred”
• Consider following those who follow you. Following
does not mean endorsement
• Keep it person-al: Automatic direct messages to
new followers miss the point.
• Don’t “Protect” updates
• When people mention you, reply (@) to them. If
they D, respond in kind.
• Re-Tweet (RT) to credit sources, help followers find
interesting tweeters.
• Publicly thank those who help you. Admit mistakes.
• Don’t conceal work affiliation
Sample Twitter Bio
Finding “Tweeps”
• Search for terms that interest you on
Twitter
•See who is saying interesting things
•Follow them
• See Twitter’s recommendations
• Start tweeting so others can find you
Assignments - Today
• Sign up for Twitter if you haven’t yet
• If you have a smart phone, get a Twitter app

following, re-tweeting and tweeting
•Follow relevant hashtags or search terms
•Follow interesting individuals
•RT interesting tweets in your stream
•Tweet links to interesting articles
