Storytelling and Sharing via Twitter (and SlideShare, too)

Patricia F. Anderson, Emerging Technologies Librarian for the University of Michigan Health Sciences Libraries, has composed a most thoughtful and insightful on how people used Twitter yesterday to share stories about 9-11.   Not only does Anderson share her insights about the power of social media for sharing stories, but she also has created a wonderful slideshow that features poignant Tweets about 9/11.   It occurs to me that we could use SlideShare for putting together our favorite Tweets about an event, but it could also be informative and helpful to create slideshows featuring favorite Tweets with the hashtags of a favorite conference or other favorite learning event.

Take a few minutes to read Anderson’s blog post, “9-11 & Twitter:  The Stories Around Us” and  her SlideShare slideshow, “September 11 Remembered by Twitter.
