CILIPS, as an early adopter of microblogging, developed a Twitter presence as part of our research into how Web 2.0 tools might support member engagement and also be incorporated into workflows – activity which in turn is supporting our efforts to lead discussion on the usefulness to our membership of emergent technologies. What we want to encourage is use of Twitter as a professional and service development tool.
With more than 1.78 million people signed up for use, Twitter has become one of the most popular sites on the Internet. In recognition of its role as a communication force, CILIP in Scotland is offering a special half day course in Glasgow this September to help library professionals get up and running with this technology. See our events calendar for more information and to book.
