BEMIDJI, Minn. — News and information about Bemidji State University is now available for followers on Twitter.
Twitter is a microblogging service that features brief messages, limited to 140 characters, and gives users the ability to tag and follow or reply to messages, or “tweets,” posted by other users. Updates can be added from anywhere, from Web-connected computers or via text message from a mobile phone or other device.
The main feed for Bemidji State University, BSUNews will provide an outlet for real-time updates on events at the University. We’ll include links to stories on BSU Today as they occur so you can follow along with the latest news from Bemidji State, and will also include photos and other information from across our campus community. It’s your outlet for information before it hits the rest of the Web, and some of the things we post will be exclusive to Twitter.
Stop by and see what we’re up to and, hopefully, say hello.
BSUNews is also available by using the “Twitter” link at BSU Today.
The feed BSUintheNews will be a place to provide links to select stories about Bemidji State University we find on-line. From stories in our local newspaper, the Bemidji Pioneer, to blog posts from Malaysia, this will be an opportunity to get a glimpse at what others are saying about the University.
Our Athletic Media Relations Department is also running a feed specifically for Bemidji State’s 17 varsity intercollegiate athletics programs, which you can follow at http://www.twitter.com/BSUBeavers.
