Book Tweets

Posted in create your own, twitter with tags on April 7, 2011 by Anita

Want a quick and easy way to share your thoughts on books with your students?  Use Twitter to post book reviews of 140 characters or less.  Add a Twitter widget and subscribe button to your blog or library website so students can follow you & they’ll get your mini-reviews right on their phone or laptop!

Create a hash tag at the beginning or end of your review so students can easily view all your book tweets at once.  A hash tag is simply a hash mark (#) followed by the “tag” or title you want to give your review tweets.  For example, the hash tag for our (new) Reading 2.0 Book Tweets is #read20review.  Keep your hash tag short so it uses minimal characters – that means more characters to use in your review!
