Twitter 101: a Hands-on Workshop (#ucsctweets)
with Melissa De Witte
April 23 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm | Graduate Student Commons | Free
It’s impossible to ignore the word (and world of) Twitter. “Hashtag this” and “140-character that” is everywhere you go. You’ve probably seen people Live Tweeting at academic conferences and heard about a peer who saw exponential downloads on their latest research paper thanks to social media.
If you’ve hesitated to make the leap to Tweet, now’s the time to get started.
On April 23rd, join Melissa De Witte, web presence coordinator for the Division of Social Sciences at UCSC for a Twitter 101 workshop – an interactive meetup that will talk you through the basic steps to get started and Tweeting away.
Bring your laptop for this hands-on event where you will leave with your own Twitter account, a few new followers, and all the ideas you need to start Tweeting.
Melissa will walk you through things like:
- Choosing the right username
- Creating your account
- Writing a Bio
- What to Tweet
- Who to Follow
– PLEASE BRING A LAPTOP as this is a hands-on event. Don’t have a laptop? UCSC students, staff and faculty can borrow one from the University Library:
– PLEASE also take a moment to review Melissa’s previous Digital Humanities talk about the importance of building an online presence:
– Start early and share your excitement using #ucsctweets.
