I created a twitter account almost a year ago. I created it because a lot of my friends were on it and said that it was really fun. Initially I got it to "test the waters." Now I'm using it a lot. Mostly to follow and tweet on this one radio personality's page... Kimberly from Kimberly and Beck... but I do have tweets of my own sometimes
Last week, our teacher had us make a professional twitter account. At first I have to admit I thought it was pretty stupid, but now I'm guessing it could actually be useful. For both interacting within the classroom with your fellow classmates, but also with the teacher. When I go into the work field, I could use it to; communicate with parents, ask students questions and give them all a chance to answer, and communicate with other teachers and admin.
Today, in class, the teacher had a take a quiz using twitter and Google docs. We were in groups, and using twitter, answer questions in a Google docs format. The teach posted all the questions we had to answer on twitter, and we had to tweet our responses.
