Twitter has been a social networking tool that I’ve avoided up until now. This may sound harsh, but I saw it as a way for self-absorbed tweens, teens, and celebrities to share every monotonous detail about their lives with the world. I mean does anyone really want to know what I had for breakfast today? But after reading a few articles about how Twitter can be used for educational purposes, especially 100 Ways To Use Twitter In Education, By Degree Of Difficulty and How to Use Twitter in the Classroom, I decided that it might have some educational merit. I created my Twitter account today and plan on exploring the social media tool more over the next few weeks.
