Having just read a very interesting blog about the wonders of Twitter by Joeyanne Libraryanne I have finally been swayed into setting up an account.

It's handy as it enables full exploitation of mobile blogging too - so I can now start to practice what I preach!!

Joeyanne Libraryanne also demonstrates some innovative ways in which libraries can use Twitter, and if you've got time, check out this wiki entry, aptly titled 'Twittering Libraries' by Lindy Brown which delves even deeper into Libraries and the Twitter phenomenon.

So if you want to follow the project in a 'micro-blogging' fashion you can now do so by signing up to Twitter...and following me on my journey over the remaining 3 months of the project!


  1. Glad to see you on Twitter, since it goes along with your research. Admittedly, I don't use the mobile features of Twitter (I prefer using a browser or plug-ins), but I'm sure it's only a matter of time before I (and the rest of the world) is constantly and ubiquitously texting tweets.

  2. Hi Vicky, yeah Twitter is great - it's really taken off in a big (well biggish) way over here at Leicester uni - we've even been using it in training sessions to run simultanious back-channel discussions. Get's very interesting when random tweeters from around the world join in the conversation!
