Twitter Literacy (I refuse to make up a Twittery name for it)

Posted on 19 May 2009 by jrobes

Wenn man die Frage der Medienkompetenz weiterdenkt, landet man irgendwann bei konkreten Beispielen und Diensten. Heute ist es Twitter, morgen ein anderes Tool. Howard Rheingold, Netz- und Community-Veteran, gibt hier einige Hinweise weiter, die er seinen Studierenden präsentiert hat. Warum er Twitter nutze, wurde er gefragt. Howard Rheingold gibt eine lange Antwort, die u.a. Stichworte wie “Openness”, “Immediacy”, “Variety”, “Reciprocity”, “A channel to multiple publics”, “Asymmetry”, “A way to meet new people” beinhaltet. Hier der Absatz, der mir am Besten gefallen hat:

“When it comes to feeding my network, that comes down to putting out the right mixture of personal tweets (while I don’t really talk about what I had for lunch, the cycles of my garden, the plums falling from my tree, my obsession with compost and shoepainting do feature in my tweetstream), informational tidbits (when I find really great URLs, that’s when Twitter is truly a “microblog” for me to share my find), self promotion (when I post a new video to my vlog share the URL - but I do NOT automatically post everything I blog on, socializing, and answering questions.”

    Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I
    could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get several
    e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove
    people from that service? Cheers!
