Twitter is a social media platform that delivers 140-character messages via SMS and web. Public tweets are instantly indexed and made available through special search engines, making this one of the fastest ways to get messages across. More details: Twitter on Wikipedia, Twitter official site. Related: Frank Farm’s list of UCSF Twitter streams, a SOM list of UCSF Twitter streams.
If you have snail mail mailing addresses for recipients (either UCSF-internal or USPS-external), you can create printed postcards or letters. Design your own, contact Campus Life Services Design Services or Public Affairs, or have the work created outside of UCSF—for recommendations see the Communicators Network vendor database, which requires Communicators Network membership and MyAccess credentials.
