Phoenix Public Library is holding a Twitter contest.
Guardian (UK) – “The legal tradition of serving court papers to a defendant could be consigned to history, after the high court ordered an injunction to be served via social messaging service Twitter for the first time.”
Social Media Law Student – “In a recent press release, the New Jersey Judiciary announced that new social media features would be used on their website to keep the community, including lawyers, informed.”
Future Tense – “The average sentence length of a Twitter message is 1.40 sentences. Gerunds are more popular on Twitter than off. The second most popular word on Twitter is “I.”
The Social – “Surprise! A full 40.5 percent of posts on Twitter–or tweets, as they’re called–can be classified as “pointless babble,” according to a new study from Pear Analytics. Coming in second was “conversational,” which the company says makes up 37.55 of all tweets.”
The Des Moines Register – “Johnston librarian Cheryl Heid chose to teach a class on the basics of Twitter after getting inquiries on how to use the social networking Web site from patrons. “I get a lot of questions at the library about (Twitter) and how it works,” Heid said. “Social networking is here to stay. I thought it would be nice to teach people what social networking is and how to use it.”
The Daily News Transcript – “Everyone’s doing it!” I’d been told. And so, a year or so ago I decided it was time to tweet and I signed up for an account on Twitter.com. Librarians had actually been hearing about Twitter since its arrival on the social media scene in 2006. Those of us who try very hard to keep up with technology had been warned that we’d be left behind and so we hurried to catch up.”
