    4. I've also heard someone say that if you don't like Twitter, you are following the wrong people. Unfollow people who bore you, don't inspire you, etc.

  7. I'm a pretty new tweetee. I thought it was kind of overwhelming at first. However, when I was at the NCTE conference, twitter was super helpful. I was able to follow presenters and authors. This established a connection with those people that allowed me to continue using them as resources. @savvybknerd

  8. Having live Twitter chats during class time is a wonderful skills based and content application opportunity. Develop a common hashtag that you and your students all use as you post questions and they reply.

    1. How are you thinking about using Twitter as an administrator? Some use it to promote campus activities and successes, while others use it strictly as their PLN.
