Twitter is a microblogging tool that allows users to publish chronologically ordered ‘Tweets’ of 140 characters or less.With Twitter you can have multiple accounts, so you might wish to have different accounts for your personal, professional and organisational uses.
Those who read tweets are meant to drink from the stream.Twitter is, in general, not a vehicle for structured, linear conversation.
Twitter is good for sharing quick ideas, links and articles.You can access industry experts, authors, like-minded practitioners, fellow hobbyists…and even celebrities.Twitter users can extend their personal learning network.
Twitter can be frustrating for liner, sequential thinkers and people who need a great deal of control.Others find the 140 character limit frustrating.In considering who to follow and deciding what you want in your stream, keeping an open mind can help you find interesting people who have new or interesting things to say.
The informal, quick nature of Twitter sets it apart from other Social Media tools.Twitter has been described as email 2.0.Twitter is an excellent place for finding industry news, building and sustaining community, offering quick updates an comments, inviting reflections, and supporting informal discussion.It is perfect for supplementing classroom-based instruction, asynchronous e-learning, live online instruction, and other methods of training delivery. It is an idea tool for filling in the spaces in between formal learning, as identified in the 70:20:10 model.
