Academia.eu to Twitter

I've been really busy for the past few weeks, so much so that I've neglected REx23. So I put aside some time this morning to try to make some headway and catch up.

I started off on Thing 6 - Join Academia.edu. I created my profile and had a little search of others to see if there was anyone out there who was looking at some similar themes to me. I was surprised that I did find quite a few and have set up my account to follow theirs.

I then moved on to Thing 7 and requested an ePortfolio. This is all I have done so far as it will take upto 10 days to create my account. More on this later.

Things 8, 9 & 10 were all Twitter based and quite time consuming; not because it was complicated but because I got sucked-in to searching and reading posts (sorry, I should say "Tweets")! I set my account and used the hashtag "#digitalwarwick" in a tweet and spent quite a bit of time reading tweets and following links to articles.

I'm not sure if I am completely sold on the Twitter idea yet. I understand the need to have a strong online presence for collaboration and the dissemination of research but I don't know if Twitter will allow me to find the material and contacts I'm looking for at the moment.

I think I'll have a look at Things 11 to 13 later

(and Thing 14 has been added since I started this morning - will I ever catch up?!)
