  • Have you dismissed Twitter as overwhelming, noisy, and beyond what you need to function as a good library service provider?
  • Are you looking for a free source for professional development opportunities that requires minimum time and produces maximum results?
  • Need a source for critical information delivered almost instantly?

Twitter as a ubiquitous, concise, and powerful social media platform is not a fad. It can, however, feel overwhelming, or even silly, if you don’t take the very little time needed to get to understand its nuts, bolts, best practices, and professional power. During this webinar, reluctant social media users will receive all the tips and tricks needed to feel comfortable—and maybe even excited—about going where there’s a professional development goldmine, already stocked with panning equipment and scales.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Know which three to five Twitter accounts to follow for maximum personal professional development satisfaction
  • Be confident about their own Twitter privacy as well as their Tweeting potential
  • Recognize themselves as curators of their own professional development opportunity access
  • Understand how to manage their Twitter time and other best practices related to using Twitter as a professional development tool

This webinar will be of interest to staff in any type of library looking for ways to incorporate Twitter into their professional resources.
