What's Microblogging (i.e., Twitter)?

Twitter is a free social networking tool that allows users to send and receive short (140 character limit) messages known as tweets. Users can use the Twitter website, mobile devices or other applications such as Tweetdeck to send the tweets.

Why do I care?

Tweets are another method to communicate with your audience and share information about upcoming activities and to learn what others are doing. You can follow friends, family, organizations you support, celebrities and, of course, libraries. DPL has a handful of twitter accounts (@denverlibrary, @denver_evolver, @freshcitylife, @WHGnews, @dplfriends) to follow.
