For months I have been talking about Twitter in the office I work at located in a basement in the center of Minneapolis on the East Bank of a campus.
together with my Dynamic Digital Signagepartners in crime Eric and Jade, we totally set up a Twitter account. We will be using the HOTTEST social networking site for FAQs, Tips, marketing, etc, etc, etc. Essentially, creating a dialogue with and amongst our clients as well as…well, having a presence. Its all about branding, someone somewhere once said.
if that other place I worked at would jump on this wagon, all would be good.
If someone came up to me and said: Hey, we don’t have any money, but we really need to boost the library’s presence and image. Do you have any ideas?
I would say:
examples of libraries using Twitter: Hennipen County Library, Danbury Library and DC Public Library
examples of libraies using Flickr: Lester Public Library, Cape May County Library and Hennepin County Library
This one thinks libraries need to be where our users are.
I have recently been following MOMA on Twitter. I really love what several art museums are doing with Twitter. I hope that libraries catch on to the amazingness that Twitter can bring.
Anyway… last week MOMA tweeted about artist Debra Hamptonwho is also on Twitter. OMG, can you believe it? I am fairly certain the world will never be the same now that Twitter has infiltrated and is broadening the world’s scope or at least my scope.
