I’ve co-authored a white paper with Andy Shaindlin of Alumni Futures: Alumni Networks and Twitter: An Update. This white paper represents a fresh look at content we produced a year ago analyzing alumni networks and Twitter. When we wrote the first paper in January 2009, Twitter was very new and hadn’t gained much penetration in higher ed (or elsewhere). As you are likely aware, Twitter grew exponentially in the past 12 months and underwent some changes – this new, updated white paper reflects on those changes and poses some questions for the future.
The white paper also compares data from a survey we conducted back in 2009 with one we conducted last month, which takes a look at the ways in which alumni associations have implemented Twitter, including lists, a recently introduced feature.
