What would happen if each person on twitter would mention his or her favorite library there? One definite outcome would be: the enormous amount of positive attention to this great industry. And for this reason October 1 2010 has been declared the follow a library on twitter day. Well respected names from the international library community, such as Michael Stephens and David Lee King have ackowledged their participation in promoting the special event.
<b>How does it work?</b>
Participating is very simple: tweet on October 1st what your favorite twittering library (or libraries) is (or are). Use in your tweet the hashtag (or keyword) #followalibrary.
<b>Followalibrary Crew and more information </b>
The initiative for the day comes from a group of information professionals who met each other on the world wide web: Edwin Mijnsbergen, Harriet de Man, Lukas Koster, Poulus Bliek and Wilma van den Brink.
