How can Twitter be used on a sustained basis to advance analysis, interpret narratives, and present data? How can the medium of short postings with illustrations be useful in attracting, capturing, and deepening attention to a continuing project? In my case, I’m looking for strategies to use twitter to reach several academic communities in preparation for a workshop on medical history and digital humanities to be held in April 2016 at the National Library of Medicine and funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. I hope to use twitter over the course of several months to publicize this event, but also to create and sustain an intellectual community interested in images and texts in medical history and the digital humanities. I would welcome the chance at THAT Camp VA to learn from others about effective strategies and tools.
