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.

From Canada to London: How Twitter Opens (Conference) Doors
As Twitter matures and empowers people, users of the micro-blogger service are finding more ingenious ways to communicate. Twittering or sending tweets (updates) about conferences or live events, such as the Presidential debates, are gaining in popularity. More

Thats it ladies and gentlemen, put those white pants and hand bags away. Get out the peacoats and scarves.
Twitter is one of latest crushes. I was introduced to Twitter during spring semester in Michael Stephens Library 2.0 class. I have been using it pretty much since class. However, over the last week, user-ship in the Twin Cities really increased. I would like to say that Michael Stephens was the cause of this, but I think this article sums it up. Library 2.0 out in the real world…yeaaaaaaaaa!
Yes, I participated in the rally and the march today in St. Paul. And no I am not an anarchist. How could I be, I am way too much of a capitalist. But I would like it known that regardless of what the media says, not all those who participated are anarchist. Others who are not anarchists have ideas too. Regardless, I am really happy about participating today, and I am really happy to share my experience.
@ the rally getting lined up for the march
sign @ the rally
exercising the right to mock the ridiculousness that has become the 1st amendment right.
This is who was watching us march. Totally awesome, totally necessary [please read sarcasm]
After the march (actually like a couple of hours after the march) this is Mucha talking with the police to find out how we can get back home since downtown St. Paul was blocked off completely. It was virtually impossible to cross over I 94 on foot.
Once we able to go home, we found the arrest area a block away from where we live. Lots of civilians cuffed and lots of riot police standing around
the people who are not police are arrested in this image
and more arrestees
Obviously what I witnessed today is nothing compared to what take place in other countries, none the less it was still a really intense day. I started the day by providing Street Reference via Radical Reference; we were even interviewed by Congressional Quarterly but we ended up witnessing some pretty intense safety measures taken by the St. Paul police department.
End of day one. What will tomorrow bring? No one knows. But I must say that Twitter really kept us informed with what was going on and where not to go if we wanted to be safe. Use Twitter. Don’t know what Twitter is? Look it up at google and get to it.
