10 Days of Twitter is an online course, which in 10 minutes a day over 10 days, gets you tweeting and building up your professional network.

Sign up if you've ever wondered how Twitter works and how it might be relevant in a professional academic context, or if you've used Twitter before but would like to explore further how it could help you professionally.

The course covers:

  • the basics – how to set up an account, follow people and send tweets
  • the conventions (@, #, RT)
  • etiquette and social conventions
  • the plethora of apps
  • strategies for tweeting effectively and building a network

During each day of the 10 Days of Twitter, a short post on a small aspect of Twitter will be published on the #ARU10DoT blog. You are set a small task with instructions each day, which you can complete in your own time.
