"Twitter for the Skeptical Professional" in MHC Alumnae Quarterly

Love the image of MHC Founder

I recently wrote a fun article called Twitter for the Skeptical Professional for the Mount Holyoke College Alumnae Quarterly.

The article's audience is alumnae "over a certain age" (as I am myself, having graduated in the mid 1980s) who have heard about Twitter but think it's silly or not relevant to them.

I talk about how I use Twitter at work (to promote the library) and for fun (to connect with science peeps). I hope it's helped persuade some of my skeptical sisters to give Twitter a try; if you or someone you know is similarly skeptical, feel free to share this article with them.
