So what does this have to do with Twitter? Think of Twitter as a tool that could be a worthy addition to communication tools already in use.

Twitter is... • a free social messaging utility for staying connected in real-time ( • a social networking and micro-blogging tool Yes, but what is it? • connections, conversations, community, and content

For educational institutions, Twitter can be... • a cost-effective (free) option to accentuate existing messages; • a broadcasting tool to announce relevant information to specific audiences; and • a (brief) conversational tool to appropriately respond to relevant inquiries and follow-up questions or comments.
