Ten Days of Twitter for Library and Student Services staff at Anglia Ruskin starts on Monday, and I’m really looking forward to meeting more colleagues online, exploring Twitter and joining in the conversations. I’ve found it an invaluable way to share information and resources with others and even discuss matters at quite some length, given the 140 character limit! I hope you find it a positive experience too.
We’ll be going at a manageable pace – one small aspect of Twitter each day, starting with setting up your account effectively on Day One – and I hope none of the Days will need any more than about quarter of an hour’s time from you. We’re all busy people, and Twitter should suit the fast pace of our work, not hinder it! If you get get a day or so behind, don’t worry though, it’s easy to catch up when you have time, the blog posts will all still be there, and we’ll still be around on Twitter to say hi!
If you’re already on Twitter, then you may well know much of what we’ll be covering already. We’ll be starting right from scratch with Twitter, but even if it’s familiar stuff to you, I hope you’ll be following the hashtag #ARU10DoT and supporting your newly hatched colleagues by retweeting and replying to their tweets! There may even be a few tips which will be useful to you, you never know!
If you have any questions, do leave them in the comments!
See you online on Monday for the First Day of Twitter!
