Library tweets around the world

Lists, lists, lists – people are always producing lists, and twitter certainly lends itself to some interesting list creation.While I understand that lists are often created by organisations trying to get visits to their site, they do also sometimes render us a service.

The Top 100 Librarian Tweeters list is certainly not exhaustive, and in fact it is also a bit random.  But it is a useful compilation for anyone starting out, or wanting to demonstrate the range of possibilities with Twitter.

Whether you work with a library, or just want to find out more about what’s going on in your community library, Twitter is a great place to stay updated on the latest developments. On Twitter, you’ll find librarians in schools, public libraries, and more, and even some working for organizations that have a lot to offer libraries. Read on, and you’ll find some of the best librarians on Twitter.

Each person or organisation on the list is important, and contributes in some way to the global dissemination of information. My twitter stream is an alternative way of sharing information – fast – rather than writing a blog post. It also includes personal chatter too!

Look for the aussies in the School and University list – @heyjudeonline (me) @neerav (Sydney) @jennyluca (Melbourne) @bookjewel (Melbourne).
