Twitter - our social networking pal....

There is a great interview in Time Magazine about the growing value of "Twitter". We at the library have been utilizing this tool for awhile.

It's value was shown to me when I was in Columbia at a meeting at the State Library. During the meeting I was tweeting and that allowed my followers to add their input into the discussion. It added a second layer of discussion and brought a wider audience into what would have been a private exchange. it also gave the event an afterlife on the Web.

If you have not tried this networking tool - try it out. I only wish I new what the NEXT big thing will be!!
