Why Should I Join Twitter?

We've compiled a map of where we're all located, to encourage new SBM/SBL folk onto Twitter. It shows how wide a coverage we have & how twitter gives a national picture of what's going on in the school business world. It also shows the contact details of SBL tweeters who have offered to act as Twitter Buddies to SBL colleagues who join up. Click on any of red @ signs to see their twitter handles.

How Do I Get Started?

We've also created a useful presentation which takes you through all the steps you need to get yourself up and running on Twitter. See how you get on, but if you have any queries at all, get in touch with one of the Twitter Buddies, who will be more than happy to help you out.

Who should I follow on Twitter?

Who to follow

That's entirely up to you. Twitter will make suggestions for you, but we have also compiled a list of all the SBL twitter accounts that appear on the Twitter Map, so that's a great place to find like-minded SBL and SBL folk. 

You can either browse the list and find people to follow that way, or subscribe to it, which will create a filtered list for you of the tweets from all the people on the list,

You can find the list on @sbl365's profile page here:
