"Why do you love twitter?" @problogger asked.

It's not just "What are you doing?"

Twitter is a place for:

  • testimonials 
  • distribution of information 
  • conversations

(from Laurel Papworth at http://laurelpapworth.com/new-on-twitter-tips-and-hints/ ) 


I think Twitter deserves a look http://wsfcsintouch.blogspot.com/2009/06/why-twitter-deserves-your-attention.html

  • value in real-time interaction and networking 
  • huge potential for expanding the walls of classrooms 


Twitter, like any other tool, is what you make it by how you use it and who you choose to follow. 




Who you follow is more important than who is following you.
