UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

CW Twitter posts help keep you updated

Campus Weekly will not publish again until Jan. 9, 2013. But the relatively new CW Twitter feed is one great way to help stay informed between issues.

The CW Twitter feed, operated by the CW editor, is one of many Twitter feeds around campus. See a list at uc.uncg.edu/connect/social-media-directory. Even if you don’t have a Twitter account, you can visit each Twitter site. But what works best is simply following the feeds you’d like with your own Twitter account.

Campus Weekly began its Twitter feed, which currently has about 125 followers, last summer. It has helped interested members of the campus community stay better informed. It has allowed the editor to include short pieces of information or observations that may not have a good place in Campus Weekly – as well as “retweet” interesting news items or pictures from around campus that may be of interest to CW readers.

The SECC had passed its goal? CW tweeted that news last Thursday – five days before it was published in CW. Don’t think you can learn much from short (fewer than 140 character) posts? Some tweets have a picture or link to a detailed post, so you can have detailed information.

The CW Twitter feed joins many other feeds on campus, such as the main UNCG Twitter feed, operated by Lanita Withers Goins (UR), which has about 6,320 followers. That feed, the chancellor’s feed, UNCG Athletics feed, UNCG Weekend and many more are quite popular. The ones associated with men’s basketball – such as UNCG Hoops and Wes Miller’s feed – are popular as well.

Visit (or “follow”) the Campus Weekly Twitter feed, https://twitter.com/campusweekly. More information about UNCG Twitter feeds is in this earlier CW post – uc.uncg.edu/prod/cweekly/2012/04/03/tweettweetatuncg.
