We're using Twitter in the Applied Technology class that I am teaching this semester. Twitter is a quick way for the students to let me know when they need some help with their assignments during the week. Hopefully, they will also discover that it's a good tool for professional development.
I've used Twitter previously, but I never spent much time with it. Obviously, that's not going to be true this semester! While I was at Edudemic.com this morning I noticed an interesting infographic of Twitter tips. I implemented a couple of the tips immediately and decided to use some of the other tips later.
Cheryl Lawson (http://cheryllawson.co/) has organized the tips well and her writing style is easy reading.
You can find ideas for your profile (why you should use a photo rather than an avator), how to find people to follow (use hashtags), and other good ideas (share photos, pay forward, ...).
Go to http://edudemic.com/2012/08/twitter-tips/ to view the infographic and learn some useful Twitter tips whether you're a newbie or more experienced with Twitter.
