Liz Azyan is well known for her excellent lists of local government and councils using social media but now she has turned her attention to the UK Universities. The List of UK University Twitter Accounts as of 28th July 2009 has  56 accounts so far and as well as the name of the university it includes the ‘bios’. A surprising number don’t have one! In addition there is a University Twitterleague according to number of followers as of 28th July 2009. If your institution is missing from the list either email Liz at research@lizazyan.com or leave your details in the comment box to the posting.

You might also want to check out the  List of UK Universities Fan Pages on Facebook as of 28th July 2009 sorted by number of fans. The top two, and way above the rest, are The Open University (16,913) and Oxford University (14,867). Again email Liz or leave a comment if your university is missing from the list.

    Hi Karen,
    Thanks so much for all your support on my work! I deeply appreciate it :o) This list is quite new so might still be alot that is missing. Will need sometime to build it as universities come forward. Thanks for reaching out for me!

    It was such a pleasure to meet you at #pcw09. Just a shame we couldn’t get to chat much longer. I definitely hope we will meet again. :-)
