Now Proven! Using Twitter At Conferences Increases Attendee Engagement, by Jeff Hurt

Now Proven! Using Twitter At Conferences Increases Attendee Engagement, by Jeff Hurt | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

"Twitteracy: Tweeting Improves Learning And Engagement
Education Professor Christine Greenhow, Michigan State University, conducted a study on Twitter as a new form of literacy (http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/00131725.2012.709032).

 

Her results showed that adults who tweet during a class and as part of the instruction:

are more engaged with the course content
are more engaged with the instructor
are more egaged with other students
and have higher grades than the other students.
“Tweeting can be thought of as a new form of literacy,” Greenhow said. “The students get more engaged because they feel it is connected to something real, that it’s not just learning for the sake of learning. It feels authentic to them.”

Twitter Content Strategy Guide

Twitter Content Strategy Guide | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

Twitter has quickly become a favorite part of content marketing strategies employed by most businesses. The 140 character limit means that it doesn’t take much work, users have little inhibition about following quality profiles and it’s already optimized for mobile. Curating a quality Twitter feed lends itself to an answer for so many marketing questions that it would be hard to list them all here.

 

Still yet, lots of users have no idea how to make 140 characters count. What we end up with is Twitter feeds consisting primarily of links and quotes. Quotes are an obvious place to start when you want concise snippets of text that convey wisdom and evoke strong emotions. In fact, the most successful Twitter users are almost always inspirational, funny or educational in nature. However, followers don’t want to follow a copy of someone that’s already in their feed, and as an online influencer you don’t want to be pigeonholed.
