We’ve had a great beginning to the VCU Interdisciplinary Social Research Methods course. Everyone is now established in a research proposal group and has an idea of a focused research topic to pursue. Everyone is blogging about the topics at hand. Now it’s time for everyone to connect to the networked world of people thinking about and doing research — using Twitter.
Create a Twitter account if you don’t have one. If Twitter is a foreign concept here’s some additional help:
- The Twitter support page for signing up.
- Twitter’s brief guide to get you started.
- A cheat sheet summarizing the special symbols and terms of Twitter.
- Some advice on getting the most out of Twitter.
Please post a tweet to me @JoyceKincannon when you’ve setup your account. I’ve created a twitter list for those people interested in the VCU Interdisciplinary Social Research Methods course that would like to use twitter as a tool to do engaged research.
