Twitter for Researchers workshop

Monday 23 July 10:30 – 12:30, South Kensington campus, SALC7

Twitter is a microblogging service that asks you to tell the world what you are doing in 140 characters or less, and can be used to build up a network of like-minded people. By selecting other Twitter users to follow, you can build up contacts across a wide range of interests. Many in the academic and research communities use Twitter for professional communication of their research, pointing followers to notable items such as papers, articles, news stories, and blog posts, as well as links to other resources, photos and other media.

This session, run by Martin Eve (University of Sussex), is aimed at PhD students, post-doctoral researchers, academic staff and postgraduate taught course students who have had little or no experience of using Twitter.

Martin Eve is an associate lecturer and tutor at the University of Sussex, specialising in the novels of Thomas Pynchon. He is also a certified computer programmer (MCP) and writes for the Guardian Higher Education Network.

Sign up for these sessions via the Book a Workshop link on the Library home page.
