So I have bit the bullet and started a Twitter account! I have used Facebook for social use since 2008, but never really felt the need to go to Twitter as well. My husband swears by it, but he uses it mainly to talk about sports. Most of the people that he follows/comments with aren’t friends/acquaintances outside of Twitter.
I am not sure what I think of it yet. I am starting to follow classmates and various Education Leaders and resources. I think having the thoughts and resources from those sources will be a great addition to my Personal Learning Network.
One thing I have already encountered is that I added Apple and the Huffington post which now makes my feed all crazy and just filled with them. I may go and unfollow, just because it’s hard to see much else with them. They post every 20 minutes it seems. Is there a way to get a summary of their posts?
When researching about Twitter, I did find some interesting statistics here
We will see how this Twitter experience goes. I am open to it but not yet entirely convinced. It is still feeling like Status Updates, but maybe as my connections and use grows, I will come to enjoy it more.
