CILIP – All of a Twitter?

Very interesting post from Phil Bradley on CILIP's response to discussion about whether CILIP has (or should have) any "official" presence on Twitter or other micro-blogging sites.

Bob McKee had said "The simple answer, of course, is no. In terms of "official" activity, cyber life is just like real like – if it happens in a CILIP-sanctioned space, it's official; if it happens down the pub or in someone else's space, it isn't."

Phil picks this apart thoughtfully and comprehensively. If you haven't already, I'd highly recommend reading his post. It raises important questions not only about the role of our professional body but also about inclusion, communication and the importance of adapting to new technologies.

Phil's follow up post on responses he received is also interesting.
