Presentation: Twitter in Higher Ed Communications

TweetChicago: Behind the Scenes

Last month the Law School announced its TweetChicago page, which collects together an ever-increasing number of our faculty and students' 140-character-or-less musings on the micro-blogging service known as Twitter.

An Event Apart Chicago, Day 1: The Ten-Minute Wrap-up

Aaron, How's it going with the aggregating the Twitter feed. It would be a great addition to the site. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. I'm thinking of adding a profile question for members to list their Twitter account to make it easier to manage.

Thanks

I'm speedy ;-) I've been trying to resist Twittering myself as long as possible, but it seems like an ill-fated battle. Thanks for all the tips!

Aaron, any progress on this? I'e had a couple of other members say this would be a great feature for this site.

Definitely. Adding an aggregate twitter feed would be great and I'll give it a prominent location on the main page. Thanks
