The terror of tweeting: social medium or academic message? | Sensible Twitter Use | Scoop.it
The mismatch between some academics and social media is not so much fear of technology, but concerns over losing control, says Claire Warwick, but spare them the beginner's guide
Sara Roegiers's insight:

This article discusses a few of the reasons why academics don't tweet: because it is not being used in their field, or because they don't want to give away ideas they are still working on. Or maybe they don't want to make claims or be quoted out of context. In the same vein, the article points to the debate around live tweeting conferences.

The author, Claire Warwick, says that uptake of Twitter could be a matter of "the herd mentality, especially when it comes to questions of prestige".

 

In her own discipline, digital humanities, Twitter is seen as "an essential communication channel".

RebelMouse was born to build a social media hub, but it does have strong aggregation, filtering and curation capabilities. SEO-wise it is not a great choice, but also Scoop.it has quite a few limits on this front. <br><br>Rebelmouse doesn't offer all of the extras Scoop.it has, from scheduling, to sharing to an extended number of social networks, to integration with newsletter and to the backend dashboard. <br><br>Scoop.it has also a better, cleaner and more legible format, that better lends itself to more in-depth reading than just browsing titles, images and tweets.

While I still use RebelMouse I have disconnected all inbound links because it posts it wacky and I was always having to go back and edit stuff. Now that I post stuff manually with their applet it isn't so bad. I still prefer Scoop.it though.

I use Rebelmouse for a while now, and I like it as a complementary tool to other Social Media tools. You can have a look at it on https://www.rebelmouse.com/Terheck/

7 Ways To Make Your Brand Look Terrible On Social Media

7 Ways To Make Your Brand Look Terrible On Social Media | Sensible Twitter Use | Scoop.it
Learn from 2012's successes and flops.
Sara Roegiers's insight:

This is an article about big mistakes that are being made with "official" twitter channels. For a quick recap: Not protecting the Twitter account enough (keep passwords safe and know how to retrieve them when someone leaves the company). Barge in to the personal sphere of contacts or potential contacts, by hijacking a hashtag or overposting. Over-automate and disregard real users trying to get answers.

 

And it all boils down to this: "place priority on maintaining an honest and relevant presence online"
