TECH TUESDAYS @ Crowell Public Library
Tuesday, May 14: Twitter: What Is It Good For?
Tuesday, May 21: Music Streaming
Tech Tuesdays return in May to Crowell Public Library beginning Tuesday the 14th with Twitter: What Is It Good For? Attend this half-hour lecture to find out how to use this microblogging service to post short thoughts, follow your favorite teams or celebrities (even talk back to them!) and get the latest news. Twitter is a real-time information network that connects you to the latest stories, ideas, opinions and news. At the heart of Twitter are small bursts of information called Tweets. Each Tweet is 140 characters long. You can follow trends with hashtags, get customer service or just share your thoughts. Businesses use Twitter to quickly share information with people interested in their products and services, gather real-time market intelligence and feedback, and build relationships with customers, partners and influencers.
On Tuesday May 21st, find out how to listen to hours of music streaming over the internet through free services like Pandora and Spotify. Pandora gives people music they love anytime, anywhere, through connected devices. One can personalize stations with the input of a favorite artist, song or genre. Spotify is a music streaming service providing content from a range of major and independent record labels. Music can be browsed by artist, album, record label, genre or playlist as well as by direct searches.
Both programs begin at 7:00 p.m. in the Barth Community Room. Bring all your questions to these fun, judgment-free sessions created by the knowledgeable and e-savvy staff at Crowell Public Library.
