Well unless you've been living up in a bird's nest recently your surely couldn't have missed how much Twitter has been in the news recently. Its popularity is soaring and in most of the articles I have been reading there are three main twitters, Jonathan Ross, Stephen Fry and Neil Gaiman. What is particularly interesting about the latter two, apart from the obvious, is that they are both advocates of reading and libraries! Surely this is a trick not to be missed. Libraries should be able to jump on the band wagon and get some free publicity from this. Stephen Fry's posts are so popular that when he posts a link the site he is linking too instantly crashes due to too much traffic. I know of one follower who, after reading one of Stephen's posts about listening to Crime and Punishment, went straight out to do the same.
Would it be cheeky for libraries to post comments about their services, even if it just encourages one more person to use their local library?
