Introduction to Twitter

Twitter is an online social networking and microblogging service that enables users to send and read short messages, called “tweets”, which are text messages limited to 140 characters.  This limit was put into place as a direct consequence of Twitter’s early days where Tweets were sent via SMS message.  As SMS are limited to 160 characters, Twitter reserved the first 20 characters for the sender’s username and left 140 characters for the message. (Dugan, 2011)

Users add a hashtag symbol, #, before a relevant keyword or phrase in their Tweet to categorize those Tweets and help them show more easily in Twitter Search.  Twitter users can follow hashtags to see all Tweets of a certain topic and can create their own hashtags to describe the nature of their content. (Twitter, 2013)

    I am familiar with Twitter. I use it for traffic updates only.

    I cannot see how Twitter would or could be used *in* the classroom at any K-12 grade level. But, I can see how Twitter would or could be used *out* of the classroom. That is, teachers might invite/encourage their older/adult students to follow them (the teachers) on Twitter regarding updates and information on their (the teachers) classes and/or courses. This would be useful and beneficial for both the teachers and the older/adult students.

    Also, Twitter could be used at the school and at the district levels as a way of sending out alerts, updates, and information.

    But, back to the classroom setting, I think that Twitter has educational limits in the classroom.

    Some writers have classed them as folk drama. I am afraid that this is misleading taxonomy. The rich Sanskrit tissue of the language of these forms and their very close adherence to Bharata’s dramaturgic canons, which recent research has established beyond doubt Bigg Boss HD Episode

    I think the best practice to use twitter at it’s best is to categorize those words or phrases you want to tweet. It will help them show more easily in Twitter Search.
