Hi Paola

Thank you for a very information post. The Twitter Chats we have been having throughout this course highlights how effective Twitter can be for a way of accessing useful information and a range of users. I can see how it is useful to library┬ápatrons as it allows people who may not have the time or live close to visit their local library. It is useful to libraries as it provides access to these these types patrons but also opens up communication channels to┬ápatrons who do not find face-to-face contact comfortable. The time effort put into developing these channels is definitely beneficial to any library’s greater community as long as it’s patrons are aware of, have access to and are skilled in using this type of service.
