I’ve always had an idea in my mind of a hashtag that everyone on Twitter uses to post their alma mater and graduation year, which would help colleges and universities find their Alumni on Twitter (outside of the mandatory search.twitter.com and other searches). Afraid of ‘creating more noise’, I was always hesitant to start a hashtag and try to promote it endlessly to success.
Well, now there’s a way to do it.
Head to http://www.alumtweet.com and fill out your information, and post it to your Twitter account. People are doing it all across Twitter this morning. As more do it, more people will click and be interested in the site and ultimately end up filling it out themselves.
As an institution, you no longer have an excuse for not being able to find Alumni on Twitter. Get to work, just like @DrakeBlake.
