I use Twitter only for professional development and as a means to keep in touch, share with and learn from 21 century educators throughout the world. I have established and maintained a worldwide PLN through Twitter. A great video explaining the same reasons why and how I use Twitter. Twitter can be a means to find and/or share ideas and resources, ask questions, participate in chats or simply just follow along on the sidelines and learn from some of the most innovative and progressive educators in the world!
** It is important to be cognizant of the frequency of which you use Twitter, as with any form of social media, it can be time consuming and addictive!
