Subject: RE: [CIG-E-FORUM] Welcome!
A bit late joining in but just back in the office.
Though I'm a systems librarian rather than a cataloguer, I maintain close links with cataloguing - our data is our capital.
I recently gave a presentation to CIGS on some of the benefits, and one of the elements I emphasised was that twitter allows people to interact at the level they feel comfortable with. Some people I know only tweet around conferences, some purely professional, some allow their personality to peep through. There is less 'intimacy' for want of a better term than e.g. Facebook, and less need to commit to (sometimes lengthy) debates on email lists/blogs. The nature of twitter allows for a drop-in/drop-out strategy, which to be honest fits much better around most people's working lives
