The Staff of the Magnes has been “tweeting” since early 2009, and has used its Twitter feed as a broadcasting tool, often in conjunction with Facebook, to update the public on curatorial projects, unusual finds in the collections, programs, projects and ideas.
Staff members contribute to the feed both as “guest tweeters,” in weekly shifts or reporting on events like conferences and symposia that take place off-site, and on an as-needed basis.
What is Twitter? Twitter is a site that allows subscribers to post news and updates, called “tweets,” up to 140 characters in length. Users may receive tweets on their computer devices through an RSS feed or on their mobile phones, and may send their own tweets on the web or through a phone as a text message.
