Why I Value Twitter & My PLN
Twitter is a free Web 2.0 social media service that allows
users to send & receive messages known as tweets.
It is a real-time information network
connecting YOU to the latest stories, ideas, opinions & news
about what YOU find interesting.

The Basics of Twitter
Recently, Kevin Honeycutt (@kevinhoneycutt), a very well respected keynote speaker tweeted:
“People who rely only on their own, self contained thinking will not be able to compete with connected people.”, which applies to teachers as well as students, and as well:
“Empowering teachers with connections to others who share ideas, strategies, resources & encouragement is a supremely benevolent act.”
