HOW TWEET IT IS: New Media in the Music Library

Kirstin Dougan Music and Performing Arts Library University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign MWMLA October 23, 2010 Bloomington-Normal, IL

"Twitter, in other words, is precisely what you want it to be. It can be a business tool, a teenage time-killer, a research assistant, a news source — whatever. “ David Pogue, New York Times

 “Young

adults lead the way when it comes to using Twitter or status updating. One-third of online 18-29 year-olds post or read status updates.” (Pew)  “The median age of a Twitter user is 31 …Facebook, however, is graying a bit: the median age for this social network site is now 33, up from 26 in May 2008.” (Pew)

 Hashtags  FollowFriday

(#ff)  Favorite-ing tweets to “save” them

 What

do you want to accomplish?  How will this fit into the larger marketing plan of your Library (big “L”)?  Who will monitor and how often?  What tools will you use?  Decide whether to monitor follows or not

 Have

an informative profile  How often should you tweet?  Rather than just saying thank you when someone RTs you, RT something of theirs  Use direct messages where appropriate
