Why Schools Need To Embrace The Twitter

by Categorized: Social Media Date:

An article on Forbes.com makes a compelling case as to why schools need to embrace Twitter for getting their story out there.

Dorie Clark and Joel Gagne outline three points:

1) More and more smart phones means Twitter is the way news is communicated. Get on board or be left behind.

2) Parents likely have choices for where to send their kids to school. A school that shows effectiveness in communicating it’s message shows they are taking an active role in that dialogue.

3) There’s very low cost of entry.

    A very interesting point of view. It proves again that mess-media and social networks are ruling our lives nowadays. We already cannot live without those applications; I can’t imagine what will be with our children – they don’t speak on the phones- just twitter. So let school embrace the twitter.
