Academia meets Twitter: An Introduction

I am presenting at a conference at the end of January a breakout session entitled Academia meets Twitter: Get a handle on Twitter for communication and professional growth in an educational setting.

This is the first in a series of posts dedicated to this topic...

Twitter can be a game-changer for online communicators. Education provides countless opportunities for various forms of communication, especially online. This leads to the question: Can Twitter be incorporated into an effective online communication strategy for educational institutions?
The short answer is yes and I wanted to explore a few educational institutions who are using/trying Twitter as part of a variety of communication needs. In the coming posts, I will present some very gracious participants who provided answers to questions regarding their institution's Twitter usage.
