Oh no! I’m already a little behind on cpd23! Time for a quick catchup…
So I’m relatively new to Twitter, and as with blogging, I’m definitely more of a ‘lurker’ than an active poster. I mainly use Twitter as a feed for my blogs, and as a ‘reader’ for keeping up to date with library things. It’s been so useful for ‘attending’ events like #cilipnpd2012 and #uklibchat, and if it wasn’t for Twitter I wouldn’t have heard of the #gltu. I don’t find the stream unmanageable as yet, but I think if I start following many more people I’ll have to develop a strategy for managing them – probably by using lists. In fact, I should probably make the lists now, to stop any hassle later down the line!
I’ve been using Google Reader for a year or so, mainly on my phone to keep abreast of library current awareness and gaming news websites. It’s amazing! All the news in one place, available on the go.
This was the only one I wasn’t really familiar with, and goodness was it fun! Easy to use and nicely laid out – fantastic. I had some problems with embedding it into wordpress, though, had to ‘publish’ via Storify website and then copy the HTML code from WordPress! the embed code given to me by Storify didn’t work. Anyway, here it is:
I’ll definitely be using this in the future… thanks cpd23 for introducing me to it!
