I'll just come out and say it, "I love Twitter." Now, you might cry out that I'm biased because I'm the Web Services Librarian, and maybe I am. I like the Web--I use it everyday. But Twitter is something that I particularly like. This coming Tuesday (8/14/2012), I'm teaching a class on Twitter at 7 p.m. Sign up for it. I'd like to convince you to love Twitter too.
Surely you know by now that Twitter is a...what? A way of sharing short messages online. Each "tweet" has to be 140 characters or less, which means that brevity rules above all else. The video clip above features Jack Dorsey, the guy that dreamed up Twitter. In his mind, Twitter was a way of trying to stitch together people spread out in time and space. It's kind of beautiful vision, if you ask me.

So, sign up for the "This is How Twitter Works" class this Tuesday (8/14/2012) at 7 p.m.. Maybe you'll come to love it too! And don't forget the library is on Twitter.
