Using Twitter in university research, teaching and impact activities – A guide for academics and researchersOctober 27th, 2011 | Posted by in Tips and Hints | Web 2.0 Links
Amy Mollett, Danielle Moran and Patrick Dunleavy of The London School of Economics have written a useful guide entitled “Using Twitter in university research, teaching and impact activities – A guide for academics and researchers”.
How can Twitter, which limits users to 140 characters per tweet, have any relevance to universities and academia, where journal articles are 3,000 to 8,000 words long, and where books contain 80,000 words? Can anything of academic value ever be said in just 140 characters?
We have put together a short guide answering these questions, showing new users how to get started on Twitter and hone their tweeting style, as well as offering advice to more experienced users on how to use Twitter for research projects, alongside blogging, and for use in teaching.
