Wow, what a week.

We have had a fantastic time this week learning and swapping stories about twitter, We now have (at the time of writing) 408 followers of the @anz23mthings account.  Thank you everyone who joined us for the Google Hangout during the week.  Sorry about the technical difficulties, these things happen no matter how many times we rehearse.

So lets see what we talked about.  Don’t forget to look at our facebook page for more comments, and just because this week is over, don’t forget to keep tweeting.  PS: to make sure your tweet is captured please use the hashtag #anz23mthings.


Twitter Tips:

klfair So my Twitter tip for the newcomers: Go checkout The Beginner’s Guide to Twitter http://mashable.com/2012/06/05/twitter-for-beginners/

lgreenpd Twitter tip – time zones matter. Follow US and UK tweeps and catch up in the morning or engage in chat in the twilight.

BooksCatsTea Build a personal learning network is my advice, follow librarians/bloggers/colleagues/tech blog accts & interests.

lewisr3 when at conferences etc it’s nice to have a real photo as yr profile pic, and add yr twitter name to yr nametag then people can recognise you irl (in real life) 

KiwiLibrarian  My best tip? Learn to switch off when you need to. Tweeting 24/7 not recommended!

anz23mthings  Twitter is a conversation 1. Start by sending a tweet 2. Find an interesting tweet and respond to it 3. Repeat!

c_hocking Join a conversation you’re passionate about – for me it was ABC #Classic100 – that helped me ‘get’ Twitter 🙂

Anita_M_Brown Why did I join Twitter? There was a world of conversations that I was not part of! 

flexnib RT @ValaAfshar: When asked ‘why Twitter?’, consider answering: smart & kind people here & they’re willing to teach & be taught

janholmquist I use lists for must read tweets. Favorite important ones. I save articles to read later with “Pocket”<- thing 9

bonitoclub Twitter is like being at a big party, eavesdrop a bit and strike up some conversations

–Did we miss your blog post? Let us know in the comments, or make sure you add the #anz23mthings hashtag.


A Final Great Idea:

luvviealex  so, just wondering, is there an A-Z of Library/ian twitter hashtags as per http://t.co/05DpgrDqGG or can we create 1?

We were not sure, so we have started a public google doc; if you know of a hashtag- please add it 🙂

    Is the Goodle Docs for the hashtags still working, or has it been moved?
