Take the challenge to tweet once a day for a month! If you don’t think you can manage this – don’t despair – just try your best and get involved! If you haven’t used twitter before this is your chance to give it a go and see what all the fuss is about!
Twitter is an excellent medium to connect and keep up to date with people and information. Getting involved in the #tweetAugust event will extent your PLN (personal learning network) and give you the opportunity to connect with library folk across Australia (and maybe further) and develop your professional online presence. Unlike blogs, tweets can be composed in a couple of minutes (including a non-smart phone) and can be quickly scanned and read – #tweetAugust doesn’t need to take more than five minutes a day and that can be while you wait for the train or in the supermarket queue!
What to tweet about?
Anything you want! New technologies, exciting ideas, interesting facts, philosophies on our profession, daily gripes (often amusing and definitely welcome, but remember we aren’t talking in a closed room!).
Make sure you remember to add the hashtag #tweetAugust to every tweet. By adding this tag you create a searchable link which we can all follow.
To get the ball rolling, here are some of the NGG teams twitter usernames:
See you Monday on Twitter!
