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 (Twitter.com) • 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.
Two Types Conversationalist Broadcaster • provides a quot;voicequot; • useful if audience knows • seen as an authority and what they are getting source • another way to push • ROE - return on engagement information • a way to interact with those • works best if you have good interested in the institution information to give • all about building • could fill a need from relationships specific area or topic
Twitter is not... • a silver bullet for communication problems. quot;It won't replace crime alerts, regular campus e-mails or our cooperation with local news outlets to help ensure community awareness of important safety issues, but it's an important addition.quot; (quoted source from Univ. Michigan adds voice, text messaging for emergency notification)
