First reflection of twitter use

Posted on: November 8, 2011

Today we will discuss the use of twitter with the JPR2011 students. From their feedback of 3 weeks tweeting (at least 2 tweets a day) two main topics emerged:

  • What content for whom? – students reflect the quality of their tweets, “it’s difficult to find topics”, “why should people follow me?” – they are irritated by the uncertainty who is behind tweets – they ask themselves:  “should I share relevant infos?” versus “sharing small things” – they thing about a twitter netiquette (“twitter no go’s”)
  • Information Management concerning twitter – how to use hashtags, lists? “everything happens so fast” “I’m afraid to miss something important” – useful apps
  • Content strategy (task for the next 2 weeks): search for interesting tweets in journalism and pr, establish two tweets lists (one general list about journalism & pr, one individual list around one topic)
