Microblogging

From Wikipedia: Microblogging is a form of multimedia blogging that allows users to send brief updates and publish them, either to be viewed by anyone or by a restricted group which can be chosen by the user. These messages can be submitted by a variety of means, including text messaging, instant messaging, email, digital audio or the web. The content of a microblog differs from a traditional blog in that it is typically smaller in actual size and aggregate file size. A single entry could consist of a single sentence or fragment, an image, or a brief, 10-second video.

The "closest resource" doctrine applies when utilizing microblogging:

1. Student Affairs Resources

Not available.

2. University Resources

3. Partner Resources

Not available.

4. Other Resources - Twitter

Twitter is the most popular microblogging service. The IT group can assist in setting up a Twitter account for your use.

A special icon to your Twitter feed will appear in the legend of your site on the student affairs server. Additionally, your most recent tweets must appear somewhere on your site as a larger indication of your Twitter presence.
