Social Media Monday : A Twitter Workshop

by Lara Brie and I REALLY believe in Social Media (hence the Social Media Monday posts :))  We really believe that it can make a difference in the parenting experience; that finding support in our online community can make things better when they are really hard.

We've outlined the whys, hows and whos of Twitter in a series of Social Media posts but sometimes what really makes a difference is some hands on help.  So we developed a workshop!

What: Intro to Twitter

I will explain the whys and hows of Twitter and walk you through getting you started!  If you don't have an account yet, we will sign you up together.

Before the evening is done you will:

- be following interesting people - have interesting people following you - have interacted with people on Twitter - have deciphered the foreign language that is "Twitter speak" -  know how to say something of value in under 140 characters - have learnt how to build relationships and have meaningful conversations with like-minded people

You must bring a laptop or tablet with wireless capability.  The library has free wifi for anyone with an Ottawa Public Library card.  If you do not have a library card, let me know and we will make sure we can get you access.  If you do not have a laptop but would like to attend, please contact me at and we can make arrangements to get you one for the evening. If you would rather not pay by paypal, email me and we can make alternate arrangements.

When: March 22 at 7pm Where: Ottawa Public Library - Gloucester North branch Cost: $25

Here is the link to the Eventbrite listing to sign up.  I hope to see some of you there!

Soon you'll be tweeting like a pro and it'll make perfect sense. I promise.
