For those of you in LIS 724 with C. Balsano this summer, you may be interested in this blog post: http://www.schoollibraryjournal.com/blog/1340000334/post/1360047736.html The author is Joyce Valenza, Ph.D, whom Chris has mentioned in class a few times. In this post, she talks about ways to search Twitter. I talked about a few in my presentation (using the @ symbol, the # symbol, and near: ) but she goes much further!
If you want to see the source of her post, see this post: http://grazitti.wordpress.com/2009/08/13/quick-tips-to-use-twitter-search-in-a-better-way/
Have fun searching Twitter!
