LCC Library on Twitter

I attended a workshop at the CTE yesterday that is making me think again about the potential uses of Twitter for the library. I just sent out an email to library staff about the possibility of starting a library Twitter account to promote services and events. What do you all think?


  1. I think twitter has some really interesting, if ephemeral, possibilities. Everyone is really just discovering and coming up with ways to use this quick and dirty tool; creating apps, hashtags (#w122e4), mashups, all kinds of fascinating things. It certainly wouldn't hurt too much to jump into the pool. But, we have to be willing to use it for something regularly.

  2. I ditto Karl's remark: "we have to be willing to use it for something regularly". Hmmm, now I have to think about what that "something" would be.
