Recognize Twitter spam

Published on

A large number of my colleagues use Twitter as a classroom tool to keep in touch with parents, share information, and create a welcoming & transparent environment. This is a quick tutorial I made for my staff to help ensure their class Twitter accounts stay safe and secure.

This small presentation will hopefully serve as a quick visual tutorial for recognizing the good from the bad, and more importantly how to tell if a trusted sender has been compromised.
