Promote your library on Twitter

Tweet your displays and activities!

Do you want to tweet out your library happenings but feel you need some pointers? Try creating a PicCollage image first. You can use colours, overlay text and apply some cool effects and frames. The finished product can be saved to your camera roll and then uploaded as a single pic to tweet out to parents, colleagues and the world!

Here are a couple of videos (and a help page) to review the basics:
