Emory Report | Feb. 23, 2016

Emory University's official Twitter account (@EmoryUniversity) topped 30,000 followers on Monday.

“This is a significant milestone in Emory’s social media presence,” says Jerry Lewis, senior vice president for communications and public affairs. “Twitter followers tend to build slowly. Having 30,000 members of our community connected so closely and so immediately creates wonderful synergy and a dynamic network.”

Emory joined Twitter in September 2008 to provide an additional means of interacting with the community, as well as utilizing a new platform for sharing news and information about the University. Emory has posted more than 7,000 Tweets and almost 1,500 photos and videos since establishing the account.
