Welcome to the Medical Library Association’s 2012 Twitter Tutorial. This is a fun way to learn about using a tool like Twitter and earn a free drink at MLA’s annual meeting in Seattle as well.
How it works:
This tutorial is open to all MLA members. It doesn’t matter if you will be attending MLA’s meeting in Seattle or not. Twitter is a fun way to share information as well as learn what your colleagues are learning at the meeting. Twitter is a powerful communication tool and can allow you to interact with meeting attendees and presenters.
To earn a drink ticket for use at the MLA Tweet-Up, scheduled for Monday, May 21, from 6-7pm you will need to complete the following activities:
1) Create a Twitter account (if you don’t already have one)
2) Complete the Twitter Tutorial Quiz in the Practice Swing area
3) Post at least three updates to Twitter using the MLA hashtag (explained in the tutorial) about what you are looking forward to at #mlanet12. Two tweets should be original and the third can be a reply or a retweet (either is fine).
Consider tweeting about which sessions you can’t wait to attend, who you want to see and meet or what you are looking forward to doing in Seattle.
Still want a drink ticket? Then we will need your name. Complete all the tasks outlined above and complete the quick survey below and you will be added to the ticket list. And yes, we will be checking to see if you tweeted.
