Twitter Explained (Leisure Pursuits)


Follow your interests on twitter:
http://twitter.com/

My twitter account:
http://twitter.com/#!/leafhansen
I use my twitter account primarily to catch up on the news. Most of the accounts I "follow" are news sources. If I read a headline that is of particular interest, I click on it and read the entire news story.

I also use twitter to share teaching ideas. I follow quite a few teachers who share ideas as well. I have used many teaching strategies and assessment techniques I have learned about on twitter.

For extra credit: Set up a twitter account. Search for and "follow"the following:
- A favorite author
- A favorite musician
- A favorite charity
- A favorite news source
- A friend
- A relative

To earn extra credit, post your twitter address in the comments section for 10 points.
