Get connected, grow your Professional Learning Network and reinvigorate your teaching

The Language of Twitter
140 characters
-chose wisely, abbreviate when you can, hashtags help spread the word, shortened links
- When you share something that someone has tweeted
-sharing someone else's original tweet with your tweet
- responding to something that someone has tweeted
- an easy way to save tweets to find them for later, click the heart and when you are ready to look for it again, go to your dashboard and locate your likes
Take your time exploring and learning Twitter
Don't get overwhelmed
Get use to using one account, before adding another.
There is a very real value to having more than one account. (professional account vs classroom vs personal)
Get your feet wet with tweeting by pacing your tweets. Try to tweet at least once, if not twice a day to get started. Consistency is key and remember it takes time for people to start noticing your work.
Once you get comfortable, you can use the app to link more than one Twitter account for ease of use. This feature can be found on your page (look for the icon of two people and follow the directions).
Did You Know?
Just like Facebook, your Twitter app and web page will look and feel a bit different.
Hashtags are a powerful
tool to extend the reach of your tweet, help you find information
Adding a . before a Twitter handle, allows your reply to the tweet to be seen by everyone you follow (rather than only on your stream, that of the person responding to and those that follow you.
Direct message, inserting media, drafting tweets, controlling your Twitter settings
