Another set of notes from Handheld Learning finally making it into my blog.
This is from a talk by James Clay. He argues that Twitter is about the community having coffee together and having a conversation. Like coffee-break chat, it’s a stream you dip into and it’s a leveller that can improve efficeincy within an organisation.
Within Twitter you can:
- Share links
- Share blogs and news
- Find out what’s happening
Tweeting makes your job bigger and smarter and faster.
With Google you have to do the searching, but with Twitter the information comes to you, and you have the opportunity to dip into other people’s communities. If you do ask questions you may get a lot of responses, and those responses are likely to have authority.
