Consider sharing it with your friends.
Twitter is a funny social network. They say you can use Twitter for whatever you want. And that's true. For this class we want to use it to carry on conversation with our students. That's why we use the hashtag #NMDL and we tweet at you, and expect you to do the same.
Twitter in this case is a great way to share information with you the student. It's also a great way to interact, and have a conversation related to our class.
You have a Twitter extra credit opportunity this Friday as Ingenex Digital Marketing (my company) is hosting a #DigitalChat from 3-4 PM EST on the topic of Klout. A perfect topic for all you who want to win a trip to Google, and win the Klout competition that Michal Lorenc has set up.
I hope you participate in the #digitalchat. You can see some info on our past digital chats by visiting our digital marketing blog. You'll notice, we have been keeping track of the chats using Storify. Like that?
So what do I want from you students. Start following the #NMDL tag. And follow your instructors and the class Twitter. Follow us all: @msunewmedia @mlorenc @mehraban @3pointross @grahamdavis and follow more like @ingenex
So how can we better use Twitter in this class? Share the resources you post on the class site to Twitter and use the #NMDL tag. Ask questions. Give encouragement. Promote cool events that relate to social media. RT things your profs say, and other things related to MSU or our class. Follow and engage with other students.
Get in the game with Twitter. Time for Week 2.
