280 characters, blue bird and hashtags….. sounds familiar? Time to get on Twitter.
I have now created a Twitter! From “thing 5” I have learnt the differences between a professional and personal twitter profile from reading the following links:
- Twitter for Academia
- Guardian: How Twitter will revolutionise academic research and teaching
- The terror of tweeting: social medium or academic message?
- From the LSE: A guide to using Twitter in university research, teaching, and impact activities
Provided by University of Surrey’s RDP team. I have only started using twitter personally last year and have developed an appreciation of how rapid information can be received in a concise chunk. I am hoping to use the account to tweet updates on my journey and introduce any articles/publications which may be of interest to industries and the public in more manageable segments.
