We’ve received a few questions this week about Twitter.  Why in the world do we care about Twitter?  What does it have to do with libraries? 

Well, Twitter is brand new – only about 6 months old.  It is really HOT in the Web 2.0 world right now.  There’s lots of talk about Twitter and its possible use.  Only time will tell if it has staying power.  If it continues to grow at the rate it has in the past, we may want to consider using it to communicate with teens or other Twitterers.

 Here are a few more Twitter resources if you are interested:

  • I thought this ‘What Not to Twitter’ comic was pretty funny. 
  • A reference librarian ponders possible uses for Twitter in libraries in this blog post.
  • This blog post discusses using Twitter to generate traffic to your website.

This week’s lesson will be posted sometime this morning!
