What is Twitter? Well, Twitter is nothing more than a fantastic (and free!) Web 2.0 service. Wikipedia describes Twitter as “a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users’ updates (otherwise known as Tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.” Many people use Twitter as a mini-blog, to let friends know what they are doing or pondering.
At the library, we are using it to notify our readers about all aspects of the library, including special events, updates about library services, selected new materials that are on our shelves, general information, and much more. And, those who subscribe to our Twitter feed can read our Tweets as soon as we post them. If you don’t want to join Twitter, you can always check out our Twitter Page for updates or check the library homepage where we have our three most recent Tweets posted.
