What is Twitter for Me Alternate way of knowing my students I use it as additional medium of student announcements & feedback. I test an idea, think aloud, get response from students or strangers. It’s a good place to share constructive ideas and meet bright minds. It ‘s a hub of prudence and kind online behavior. It’s a pitstop of sharing fun, good food, even bad days. It’s a channel where I hear students’ irrational thoughts, have a better understanding of them. It’s a place where people share things they are passionate about, so amazing & admirable!
