Tweet....tweet... anyone out there?

Hey @BSC!

This past summer we started our adventures into the new land called Twitter. During Orientation we experimented with new uses for Twitter in our office including an Off2BSC Twitter account for freshmen and their families as well as an OL staff account to offer better communication among our staff. Besides our venture, our colleagues in Athletics started@BSCBears and our friends in the Campus Center are tweeting as well.

We had some fun stuff happen:
- we got the chance to instantly communicate with our OL's and used it as a "group text messaging" function as they linked Twitter to their cell phones.
- we recruited some freshmen into campus programs through our Off2BSC links that we publicized.
- we answered questions about Orientation that incoming parents had and gave them quick, concise responses to their questions.

So the question remains, where do we go from here with this? We need to hear from you ON THIS BLOG about whether you are using Twitter and what uses you think it could have for OSIL in the future.

We're tweeting up a storm... but is anyone listening?

If we can get our followers going... we'll offer you a Tweducation about the wonderful world of Twitter!
