thinking about using Twitter to reach out to patrons?

snoisleteens is getting ready to launch our trial Twitter site. Some other libraries are already doing this.

Here is a great blog post about using Twitter effectively and entertainingly for libraries.

Making a good combo of funny and informative seems to be the trick!

What would you like to see?

We talked about this idea at last night's TAB meeting. Only one teen had heard of Twitter and the rest thought it sounded odd. That doesn't mean they won't ever use it, but we may start out slowly. They were most enthusiastic about setting up our own branch blog for teens and using it to talk about books and programs.
