Credit Union Times launched our Twitter effort at NAFCU’s 42nd Annual Conference & Exhibition this week. It’s been an interesting learning experience. Though I proposed it, I have to admit I was skeptical. Personally, I would probably never participate in something like Twitter because I’m a fairly private person and don’t care to broadcast my daily rantings to the world. Definitely not a Gen Yer.

However, as Credit Union Times’ official Twitteratus, I really have found it to be fun. We’re able to provide more flavor from the conference than we can in a straight news story, or post tidbits that may not rise to the level of a story. Of course, we’re also hoping to expand exposure; we’ll see if that ends up being successful, but after reading and writing about how or whether Twitter should be used, I figured we should try it.
