Subject: [LRRT Steering Committee] RE: RE: Re: RE: RE: To be discussed at June meeting: membership benefits
I created a Twitter account for LRRT this past weekend: https://twitter.com/#!/ALA_LRRT Be on the lookout for tweets from this account – we’ll be using it in the next few weeks to make announcements about the forums. It’s our hope that other ALA accounts will pick up and retweet our announcements.
If you would like to follow the account, that would be great. We’ll follow you in return. Please feel free to RT our announcements to your followers, too.
Since the account is now created, I’d like to suggest we use Twitter as a primary platform for social media communications. Twitter has changed a lot in the past few years. It’s now possible to attach fliers and photos (and URLs, of course). Committees can ask specific members to tweet events, mentioning LRRT (@ALA_LRRT) or using our hashtag (#ALA_LRRT), and the Communication committee can use it for announcements.
