MUSUEM HIGHLIGHT: STUDIO MUSEUM IN HARLEM
slight aside: studio museum was my first museum job and will always hold a special place in my tin heart
Studio Museum’s Twitter is an excellent example of balance. It is both informative and full of multimedia without teatering on tawdry or overdone. Twitter accounts are built very simply and often times users can over-do the basic use of this microblogging site.
Studio Museum features museum events, events to see in NYC, makes sure to respond to correspondence, and charts the life of the lovely Thelma Golden. Studio museum’s twitter is also great because they often link to posts on the museums tumblr page.
- Twitter allows users to use #hashtagged topics to key word search
- While Twitter terse correspondence is encouraged, Twitter is not a playground and is not a chat room
- Twitter allows users to list friends/followers on large list serves like “Museums” or ”Museum Professionals”
- Studio Museum does not utilize this feature, but there is a box that allows for 160 Character description that can be used to write a brief summary of your institutions mission statement
