A few months ago I got Twitter. When I first got it I made a tweet about how I was making my first tweet which was very original. That’s about all I did for a few weeks and then I tried to tweet some more. I do not really know what to post on there yet so I am mostly just posting about random things in my day which is not helping me build my professional twitter account. I hope to some day be connected with many other educators where we can discuss and share ideas and links. I realize that this is exactly why we were encouraged to sign up for twitter and I am starting to build my professional network. I thought it would be fun to find some reasons to use twitter and ways that twitter should not be used.
I think the first website I looked at told me that others I want to follow won’t take me seriously due to the fact that I have tweets about nothing at all. So I kept on reading. My favorite article, due to the name mostly was Twittiquette. I liked the information it gave that it should not be a self promotion it is meant to be used to share with and connect with others. I realized here that instead of just tweeting I should be responding to those I am following. It also told me to let my followers get to know me a bit, which I think is a great idea because the second I post I am in education I can begin to follow and be followed by other educators!
Here is a video to watch that will help with Twitter Etiquette!!
Now it is time for a Twexpert (haha) to make use of a new tool! Check me out! calder2b!
