While the OICD first had an online presence as early as 1999 in the form of a basic website, the organization was late coming to twitter.

Setting up an account (@oicd), the OICD’s first tweet was on the 7th October 2010. In the short months that have followed the OICD twitter channel has shared valuable information from over 170 different news sources and organizations.

Highlights include: the US Institute of Peace webcasts, interviews and pdf packs, Ethnic Conflict’s minute-by-minute monitoring of conflict around the world, and a variety of other announcements from innovative new books on identity to media projects focused on social cohesion around the world (all of which can be found amongst the OICD’s re-tweets).

If you haven’t got a twitter account yet, the OICD channel is another reason to get with this latest online resource!
