Twittering

Twitter is a free social messaging utility for staying connected in real-time. It is increasingly used to spread news, promote events and maintain contact with people through sharing short bursts of information.
 
If you want to get started, here are some useful guides:
 
"Twitter is taking the world by storm, leaving Facebook and email in its wake. We examine how the micro-blogging site is helping users in their personal and professional lives."
 
 
 
 
The Women's Resource Centre has been twittering for a while. Check out their advice. They recommend twittering because:
"You can send out quick notices, let people know about interesting news, events or comments – all without cluttering up people’s inboxes. And you make contact with (and build relationships with) people you didn’t even know existed. It breaks down institutional barriers and opens up your organisation to supporters, potential supporters, peers and even policymakers."
