For LSE Teaching Day 2010 we heavily promoted the use of Twitter as a backchannel communication tool and were very pleased with the results. Twitter updates relating to Teaching Day were identifiable by the event tag: #lsetd10
The 249 updates* were made by 29 people, 16 LSE staff & students and 13 non-LSE showing how backchannel communication can extend beyond the walls of a face-to-face event. The event had 180 delegates.
A large majority of tweets came from a small number people:
- Only 7 people reached double figures
- One person, @tweeduizendzes was responsible for almost 1/3 of the updates
- Top 5 tweeters accounted for 77% of the updates
Types of Updates
Tweets can be standard updates, replies (directed at someone in response to an update), mentions (an update referencing somone else) or retweets (one person re-posting another’s earlier update).
- Updates 63%
- Retweets 26%
- Replies 6%
- Mentions 5%
I have attempted to classify the 249 tweets based on their purpose with the following results: Read more…
