Twitter addendum…

I keep running in to conversations about Twitter – both online and in person….not sure why it is suddenly the “trendy” thing to talk about. I have even been asked about it at home over the dinner table by the less geeky/uninitiated members of my family.  Hmmmm, how to explain Twitter in 25 words or less and without looking at it or trying it out? 

Take a look at Twitter for yourself!

Anyway, just since my last post a few nice pieces have been shared to Twitter…about Twitter…and I think they are worth taking a look at – especially if you are still forming an opinion and have not yet decided to participate:

1.  Steven Levy on the Burden of Twitter, Wired Magazine
2.  State of the Art: Twitter is What you Make It, NYT
3.  Teaching Carnival 3.1 , New on The Salt Box, blog of Jason B.  Jones at Central Connecticut State University – scroll down to see links to Twitter uses in teaching and learning

Cheers!
