Twitter can be considered a more sustainable, green tool. Why? well, it’s FREE. You can get your message out quickly to lots of people w/o sending out something in print format. You can easily and quickly receive info and tips on green topics (which you can then quickly & easily re-tweet) w/o printing, mailing or driving anywhere. You can do it mobilely, wherever you are, w/ less energy cost than a computer. There are lots of bloggers (green blogs, library bloggers) who post their messages via twitter – a one stop shop. You can market what green things the library is doing or invite people to a green event through twitter. Try participating in a conference w/o attending in person – or at least – read tweets from people at the conference. Search twitter for references to green & sustainable libraries to find out whats happening around the world. Use twitter to motitor your energy usage.
