[Web4lib] Who does your library follow on Twitter?

Hi All,

Our library recently established a Twitter account at
twitter.com/akstatelibrary. I'm a sort of do it first, ask questions
later kind of guy, so I'm asking now what I should have asked before:

If your library has a Twitter account, do you have criteria about who
you will follow? Any non-spammer? Only other institutions? No one at
all? Why do you what you do?

Our main purpose in having a Twitter account is to have a user-friendly
funnel for our RSS feeds and to have the ability to broadcast last
minute webinars and new resources in a way that doesn't clutter people's
e-mail boxes.

Thanks in advance for any advice. - Daniel
