  • Slide 14: Communication - Twitter A key part of our communication strategy is twitter and I want to say a few words on the rationale behind this. One of the greatest challenges in a project of this scale is making sure we are all aware of what we are all doing. To complex a communication system and people won’t take part, because (to use the jargon) the transaction costs are too high. To this end Twitter is an extremely simple, and quick way of announcing what you are doing, where the burden is extremely low. In fact each post (or tweet) has a maximum of 140 characters. Now I’m aware that some people might be sceptical about this strategy, and likewise I’m sure we have many twitter virgins in the audience. Thus I though it would be worth saying a few words about how to use twitter. First off people should ideally create an account in their own name. This involves going to and registering. Having done this there is a little box on your twitter page where you simple Tweet what you are doing in 140 characters or less. By including @vbrant in your tweet it will appear on the Vbrant website and the vbrant twitter feed. Your can go a step further by including #[1-8] for the specific workpackage that your tweet relates to. My best advice is to tweet often and based on personal experience I would encourage you to download an app. (you can get the for your mobile phone and your computer) because this makes it extremely easy to tweet.
