Good and inspiring article on how the Times Higher Education weekly magazine (UK) uses Twitter for conversations and news. Perhaps it can inspire someone here?
- Announcements & community news
- Calendar events
And the *great* thing is that all of these items are tweeted *automagically* -- no user involvement.
We also "live tweet" during meetings and events.
The TE SIG created a "formal" Twitter policy: http://www.stc-techedit.org/Twitter+Policy
We're publicizing a good number of chapter activities and initiatives with @stc_rochester, but Twitter overall has not gained much traction within the Rochester Chapter. However, including the #ROC hashtag caused our September kickoff meeting to be repeated on the Rochester City Twitter. A reporter from the local newspaper saw the meeting info, attended, and wrote a profile on the chapter.
Anyone else using Twitter as part of their community communications plans?
