Reaching out via Twitter

In the last couple months I have come across an info graphic on Twitter that is definitely worth sharing.  Thanks to @SocialBttrfly for reposting yesterday.

As a recently new ‘tweeter’ (6 months) these stats are helpful in understanding the power of Twitter and how to harness that power.  I have learnt:

  • Tweet between 9-11am or 1-3pm
  • Tweet on Tuesdays for maximum viewing
  • I am not alone on Twitter, 1 billion tweets go out every week
The info graphic is useful as while I am experiencing the power of Twitter by crowd sourcing information, sharing ideas and learning about new things via my networks and their networks, not everyone is convinced.  The info graphic may help boost confidence in your skeptics.  Yep – it’s a fast and fun tool for communication, outreach and learning.  How can you argue when someone is joining Twitter every 5 seconds? I admit, its a bit distracting.  Still, give it a try and share your twitter handle!  @MKlaurie is now going back to work 🙂

I am tweeting!

A quick hello to say I am now tweeting thanks to the fine folks from #NV11 and #OCE2011 such as @bxmx and @ToriKlassen.  I am still learning however so far I have been using tags such as:

#adaptation – climate change adaptation 

#KM – knowledge management

#NV11 – Northern Voice

#Etug – another great event that was in Nelson and used graphic recording

#rosviz – a graphic facilitation workshop I host in Rossland July 13-15

It’s still new but looking forward to ongoing tweets!  You can follow me at @Mklaurie

I will post more as I learn more.  So far there have been benefits particularly around crowd sourcing knowledge, sharing quick information and event specific information (real time sharing).  If you have a specific use or learning about tweeting, please let me know via the comments below.
