Interacting with others getting the most out of Twitter requires sustained Twitter's interface doesn't give much away. follow official accounts from news agencies, universities, think-tanks, activists, politicians @mention: the other person sees your tweet as addressed to them.
RT or "Retweet": you re-post someone else's tweet.
...Always "give credit" when you tweet something that came to you through your network. http://storify.com/qui_oui/what-is-twitter-to-you "social media": Combining other tools with Twitter & blogs... don't be afraid

@DeanSossin professors Social media monsters... there's nothing *inherently* good, helpful, or productive about social media. Something to keep in mind: spewing words into the aether?

@OCUFA *web-based & mobile technologies that enable social interaction & exchange
*emphasis on user-generated "content" & sharing/commenting *professional networking and collaboration
*support from [distant and not-so-distant] peers
*access info and research materials
*keep up with news relating to a field
*online presence will "build itself" anyway; "digital footprint" Diving in... Fredericton, New Brunswick @ffi_maija #LoveHE ...so think before you post!* ...and don't tweet/blog anything that would embarrass you if your parent or employer (e.g.) were reading.

@smgrimes I started my photo blog in 2009, using it as a way of sharing my favourite "hobby" with others. about a year later, after spending a lot of time reading the higher ed news and using Twitter,, I realised I wanted to write a blog related more closely to my research. So I started "Speculative Diction", an academic blog. I define these broadly as blogs that are concerned with either academic issues, or with the topic of the author's research. Using Twitter, and writing my own research-related blog, have led to new connections and to opportunities to publish my writing elsewhere (both online and in print). "Research impact"? President of SSHRC shows he's been reading my article on academic blogging... ...with thanks to @eristkes for tweeting me during this presentation at OISE! :'-( avoid getting hacked! *be aware of the consequences of what you're doing. http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2012/01/10/pol-tony-clement-twitter-etiquette.html :-D http://www.thejournal.ie/katie-price-urges-closer-eu-fiscal-union-but-warns-against-quantitative-easing-334427-Jan2012/ yes, this can happen to you too...change your password regularly. Twitter is a great tool for commenting "live" on events & posting event-related information. It's used by those attending the event and also to share with people who can't be there in person.
This has worked for political activism (e.g. Egypt), natural disasters (Christchurch NZ, and Japan earthquakes), and also of course for academic events like conferences! Attach conference tag to your tweet; search the tag for more tweets about the same event. Examples Some tags: In August 2011, my blog moved to the University Affairs site where I now post about once a week. Excellent "starter's guide" to Twitter for researchers, by Martin Eve @martin_eve http://prezi.com/beqjtk5qhxcs/using-twitter-for-research/ RSS is used to "feed" articles from different web sites into one convenient page ("reader") so that you can aggregate news according to your interests. Example: Google reader http://goo.gl/vpdjz http://www.diigo.com/index Example: Social bookmarking with Diigo social bookmarking sites allow you to create an online account & save links to it from any compter, anywhere. In addition, you can tag your links to keep them in order, & share them with others. A tool added to your browser allows you to save & tag links, & share them (on Twitter as well), as you find them. http://www.scribd.com/ Example: Document sharing with Scribd On Scribd you can upload documents and share with others on and off the site. You can also organize documents into "collections". Example: Searching & saving tweets with Storify Example: Example: Photo sharing with Flickr Example: sharing presentations with Prezi Example: Saving & sharing maps with Google Maps http://markcarrigan.net/2012/02/01/why-do-you-find-twitter-useful-as-an-academic/ http://salmapatel.com/academia/prezi-10-ways-researchers-could-use-twitter Many first-time users of Twitter give up on it after a limited period of use. But Twitter is a tool that becomes more interesting and useful over time, as you engage in regular interaction with other users. Twitter's interface doesn't "show" you how things actually work. Tweets might look nonsensical at first, but you can soon learn the "language" of Twitter by watching what others do. on Twitter:
