What you missed on MCR Twitter Digest -April 03-16, 2012

Dear MidContinental Region News Readers,

You may have noticed that we have recently started posting a digest of our Twitter Tweets from the previous two weeks or so in the MCR News.

Well, we have certainly noticed because our web stats show a jump in clicks to the full text of these Tweets the day the digest is posted to the MCR News. With this good feedback, we will continue to provide you with a digest of Tweets.

You may now find yourself wondering where does the MCR Staff get all these great health information access, non-library centric news items they Tweet on Twitter?

You are correct to notice these Tweets are health information access related, non-library centric news items. They are cherry-picked from dozens of Blogs, Listservs, email announcements, news feeds, online magazines, and Twitter by your NN/LM MCR Staff.

You are probably thinking to yourself right now that because these Tweets are such good health information access, non-library centric stories that you’d like to do your own cherry-picking and send to your users.

Yes! This is exactly what we’d like you to do. Please share them with your users.

So, now you are thinking about how you want to do this (get help here) and you are remembering that when reading the digests that many of the Tweets are time sensitive and are breaking news items and you don’t want to share old news with your users.

If you want to avoid sharing “old news” you can create yourself a free Twitter account ( and follow our Tweets @nnlmmcr (!/nnlmmcr). You can make it so Tweets to you come to your email.

You now are probably exhausted reading all this and just want to get to the digest.

Yes, sorry about that…
