Twitter is a free, incredibly useful tool to promote your research online – but how do you know if you’re doing it ‘right’?

Whether you are new to Twitter, a confident user or somewhere in between, come along to our Academic Twitter Forum to discuss and share your experiences with other academics.

This informal session is a safe place to discuss the opportunities and pitfalls of Twitter, share tips and ideas and connect with other academic staff – from PhD students, early career researchers to senior lecturers from across the University.

Professor Katherine Cockin from the Department of Literature, Film, and Theatre Studies will start the session with a short talk on how she overcame her fear of Twitter and unlocked its full potential.

Ben Hall and Neri Blower from the Communications Team will also be on hand to answer any questions you might have about tweeting from a professional account.

The Essex Twitter Forum will take place on Wednesday 19 September, 2pm to 3pm at Special Collections Room in the Albert Sloman Library, Colchester Campus.

Feel free to bring your own refreshments. No registration necessary, just turn up!
