Many museums are now twittering. Who's following? Is this another example of the museum digerati preaching to the choir, helpfully serving as the audience as well as author for a new technology, or are there 'real visitors' out there getting something out of our tweets?


Here are some commentaries:

The American Art Museum's Twitter stream made it on to NPR this morning in an interview with new Secretary Wayne Clough:
"The Smithsonian American Art Museum is now involved in a Twitter site. Now I didn't know much about Twitter but I got on the other day and I twittered a little bit and it was which was really fun--and it's a way to bring people in to engage with our curators." <http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=95460522>

This topic seems to have blown up a bit over the last two weeks, for whatever reason. My own take on it is here: http://kovenjsmith.com/archives/121, and Ari Herzog's original post that started much of the conversation is here: http://www.ariwriter.com/2008/12/how-the-museum-of-modern-art-is-online/. In these and the Nina Simon post that Nancy linked to, the back-and-forth discussion after the posts is often as interesting (if not more so) than the original posts themselves, so I do recommend you read all the way through.

Thanks, Koven! I've got another from Tyler Green & will add it and the other two you mention to the main page to get us started.

Also, should mention that we are experimenting (unofficially) with using Yammer (a Twitter-like application that restricts the viewing of tweets to a single domain) here at the Met for internal communication. Feel free to contact me offline if you want to talk about this.
