When I first heard that we had to make a twitter account I was not excited at all. Upon making my twitter account it asked me to 'follow' people. So I typed in all of the famous people and bands I knew and 'followed' a couple of them. Following the first day using twitter I was still a little hesitant about it, but after that I started to warm up to it. After using twitter to answer quiz questions I started to realize how useful twitter can really be.
I have discovered that twitter isn't only for posting silly tweets, although that may be fun. Twitter can be used to share knowledge and communicate with people from across the world. Twitter isn't only used by media infused teenagers but it's used by professionals in education! Following some of these educators is a great way to learn how new technologies are affecting classrooms.
