The Krafty Librarian posts an article on microblogging [“a form of blogging that allows users to write brief text updates (usually less than 200 characters) and publish them, either to be viewed by anyone or by a restricted group which can be chosen by the user”]. While she hadn’t seen any useful application of Twitter — a microblogging tool — in a medical library context, she read a post at Library Clips that suggests some possibilities, particularly for Pownce, a microblogging tool “centered around sharing messages, files, events, and links with already established friends.” Read the Library Clips article.
