Twitter and Microblogging

Digital and Information Literacy

Allowing instantaneous communication to people anywhere in the world in 140-character bursts of inspiration, Twitter provides personal communication between friends, family, and acquaintances, is a means for celebrities to connect with their fans, and is a platform for micro-blogging, advertising, and the reporting of breaking news. Learning to use such a powerful and far-reaching form of communication efficiently and safely requires knowing the tricks, the tools, and the responsibilities involved. This book provides exactly the guidance necessary to maximize the wide-ranging utility of Twitter, while alerting readers to the dangers posed by over-sharing as well as the cyber-bullying, cyber-stalking, and flaming that micro-blogging and other forms of digital communication can foster.
