Twitter might be useful after all

I have to confess that I was totally rolling my eyes about Twitter as being another flash-in-the-pan geekfad, but this nice presentation by David Free and David Lee King from the BIGWIG Social Software Showcase is both brief and informative, and has some great examples of how libraries and librarians can actually use twitter.  Still of limited usefulness for someone like me, who (*gasp*) doesn’t own a cellphone and therefore can’t go around texting and tweeting left and right, but well worth a look-see.

Other presentations from the BSSS covered LOCKSS, folksonomy, and LibraryThing for Libraries.
