@SmithSchool Named Best B-School Twitter Feed

The University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business was named the best business school Twitter feed for 2011 by “B2BTOY” (B2B Twitterer of the Year). This year’s award winners in the various categories included Lockheed Martin, Maersk, and Toyota, among others. Winners are nominated by Twitter users and selected by a panel of 11 judges. The judges and competition sponsors represent several top advertising, marketing and social media agencies. Last year the Smith School was a runner-up in the category.

“Each day, we tweet about school news, events and expert faculty commentary on timely topics,” said Alissa Arford, director of online strategy at the Smith School. “Twitter is adding a great new interactive dimension to our marketing communications strategy. I can’t think of a better place to ‘tweet’ for than a top-ranked business school. You have brilliant and diverse people in a dynamic environment with exciting events that make for an endless variety of tweets!”
