What do you use Twitter for?

Upon asked to tell new faculty how I use social media, I wrote a blog post. I concluded that it was really about the people and the interactions, so just before heading to the workshop I asked my Tweeps what they get out of twtter. they didn't let me down.


  1. And here's the answers I got.
  2. I think many of the folks at the session were still in the "being overwhelmed by it all" stage, but several participants asked very good questions. Maybe even some future bloggers and Tweeters in the group. Not a bad way to spend part of an afternoon.
  3. For my take on what I use Twitter for, and why and how I blog, you can read the post I wrote to prepare myself for the session.
