Tweeting Chemistry Dr Simon J. Lancaster School of Chemistry Tweet including #VCE11 : What do you think of the decision to close the PSC?
@S_J_Lancaster: Tweeting Chemistry “Twitter is a website, owned and operated by Twitter Inc., which offers a social networking and microblogging service, enabling its users to send and read messages called tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the user's profile page.” Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twitter, accessed 1/5/2011. Reasons to Tweet: 1. To provide a novel and very immediate means of communication with students over a particular topic or module. 2. To keep in touch with the chemistry / education community.
@CHE2C32: Supporting a Module Example tweets from @CHE2C32 : Please remember to put #CHE2C32 in your tweet if you want it to feature in the lecture. @CHE2C32 just addresses it to me its not the search term. "Super-toxic" dimethylmercury is this week's Chemistry in its element #podcast subject. Careful now! http://bit.ly/cHswSp http://bit.ly/cHswSp Example tweets from followers (students): @CHE2C32 made some great black shiny crystals today :D @CHE2C32 Tutorial work and dolly mixtures - happy times :) @CHE2C32 is in the house and my experiment chooses this time to start going wrong. Thank you God.
