Academic Use of Microblogging

Martin Ebner, Graz University of Technology, Graz, Austria

Abstract:

Microblogging has become a rapidly growing web based service in the last two years. The most popular platform Twitter addresses millions of users who are communicating around the globe, by writing small pieces of text messages. Bearing in mind that only 140 signs for each posts are allowed, it is amazing how different kind of data is linked and exchanged among followers/friends or even by searching/using so called #Hashtags. In this talk we will give a short introduction into the use of this kind of social networking platforms and how people are communicating. We are studying how it can be used in a meaningful way in education and research. Furthermore we will address the research question "How Microblogging can be used at scientific conferences" and present some outcomes of different studies. The talk tries to present a critical view to a new increasing communication possibility.
