Next, I’d suggest looking at themed lists or compilations. These are one-stop-shops to find universities, colleges, higher ed marketing strategists, web designers and personalities who have a twitter and social media presence.
- PBworks has a University fan wiki that you can edit and add your institution to.
- Higheredtweeters.com is a page started by Marie Howell to compile a list of higher ed tweeters. The funny thing is the twitter handle she lists isn’t valid.
- The Chronicle of Higher Education put out a list of 10 to follow on twitter. The list represents different facets of higher education: professor, student, public relations, president, researcher, lecturer.
- Social Media Club started an education group. Look at their list to see who is teaching social media across the country and world.
- Additionally, there are sites like Twellow, where you can search for a broader term like education or research, or college & university students. There are 12 more categories in education where you can narrow your search; wefollow, that has a generic “education” list; or blogs like that of higher eudcation marketing consultant, Karlyn Morrissette, who created a Master Higher Ed Twitter List where she has added twitter handles of higher education personnel she’s come in contact with. People have continued to add their info in the comments section. It’s a loooong list. Distance-Education.org also has a list of theboth online and traditional student 75 most useful college education resources on twitter for both online and traditional students. This list highlights those resources who provide daily updates and links to articles, tips and advice. Something akin to student support via twitter.
