Twitter for Technical Communicators: Recording now Available

Yesterday (11/03/09) Christie Fidura and I hosted an eSeminar entitled Twitter 101 for Technical Communicators, and I’m happy to report that we had a great turn out and it went very well.

I started the eSeminar making a case for why Twitter is the perfect platform for Technical Communicators.  Here are some reasons I listed:

  • Twitter is the perfect platform for you to become an Information Facilitator
  • Twitter gets you closer to your end-users
  • Twitter gives you unbiased feedback about your products and services
  • Twitter enables you to drive traffic to your documentation
  • Twitter can raise your corporate visibility
  • Twitter enables you to follow conferences without being there
  • Twitter is an essential business tool
  • Twitter enables you to discover new information
  • Twitter is Simple: Anyone can follow you and you can follow anyone else
  • Twitter is FUN

I also shared my personal reasons why I use and love Twitter.

If you missed Twitter 101 for Technical Communicators, or want to watch it again, heres’ the recording.

TIP: I typically set my desktop resolution to 1024 x 768 for best recording results, however because I was showing apps, which require high resolution, you will notice some distortion in the demonstration part of the recording. Something you may want to try is to click the “Scroll” button at the bottom left of the Connect Pro window, which will help you zoom in closer and follow the action around the presenter’s mouse.  To the right is what the button looks like in all Connect Pro recordings.
