We’ve taken a look at Twitter, but there are a number of tools you can use with Twitter. Twtpoll is one such tool, which is used to create simple polls and surveys to share on Twitter and elsewhere. They’re really easy to set up, and you can even share your poll in a blog post (as you can see below!). So, what is your favourite Christmas food/drink treat? We’ll be interested to see your responses to see which food/drinks everyone is looking forward to the most! The poll will be open until 12th December.
If you prefer to keep your messages short & sweet then try out Twitter. Twitter is a micro blogging service, where you can post brief messages (theres a limit of a 140 characters) to your followers, send photos, send links and you can also follow others, check out UKOLN briefing guides for more details.
I find twitter is a great way to stay up to date, make new connections, share ideas etc

Welcome to Festive 24 Things, originally an advent calendar based on the same idea as the 23 Things programme.
Join Damyanti, Jo and Trudi in their festive quiz through useful (and hopefully fun!) online resources. Each day there will be a cryptic clue to the title of a Christmas carol (or song) and a tool which will also give you clues. At the end of the 24 days, we’ll ask you to submit your responses for each day and we’ll draw a winner
