Been thinking about the daily tweets, which Mark Russell set up. I think Twitter could play a role in keeping the project visible and in showing our (hopefully) forward momentum; it also provides a constant checkpoint to the Tweeterer(?) to be thinking about the project, its goals and ambitions. From the project manager's point of view this last in particular could be very useful. Twitter constantly surprises me with the people I make links with and the things I learn about the world I work in and the interests that drive me. The downside may be that when momentum slows (as is perhaps inevitable at times of intense on the ground activity like the EVS workshops) it becomes hard to know what to Tweet that will remain of value to the project and those interested parties we are trying to communicate with 'out there'.
Another issue is that my own Twitter identity is already established and the ITEAM project will likely appeal to a difference audience to the one I (in a limited way) already have. For this reason it may be better to set up a special ITEAM account so that I and the rest of the team can all Tweet on it and so that the project identity is kept 'crisp' and 'uncluttered'.
Some things for discussion with the rest of the team next week :)
