Horton Hears A Tweet (Joanna Dunlap and Patrick Lowenthal) Instructional Use of Twitter. "In this article we share some of the insights gained using Twitter as an instructional tool and explain why we think Twitter, despite its drawbacks (and really the drawbacks of social networking in general), can add value to online and face-to-face university courses."Twitter
Tweexchange (100105) "The new Tweexchange lets you quickly find available Twitter usernames and web domain names (through GoDaddy) at the same time. The results appear fairly quickly, as you type the name in the search box, which gives you a nice side-by-side comparison of available names. If you like, Tweexchange can notify you when a domain that is pending removal will be removed. You can also back order taken web domain names, and bid for domains that are for sale directly from the service. In a world where a Twitter username is almost equally as important as a web domain name (or a Facebookname, for that matter), Tweexchange makes it really simple and fast to find a name that’s available on both fronts."
Do You Tweet? (100104) "Turns out I was. There are thousands of other educators, professors, administrators, and Technology Integration Specialists on Twitter. There are groups on twitter that are important to follow. In less then a month I went from following 3 Twitter accounts, to over 50 (so far). I went from being followed by my brother to over 50 (so far)."
Twitter U (100104) "This wikispace was inspired by a blog post of @darahbonham on Twitter. Check out his post and then feel free to join in the fun. Think about all the links you miss during the school day. Imagine if those links were accompanied by a hashtag that would make it easier to search by topic. The first Hashtag: #PBL was created last week. Check it out!"
Twitter as a PLN (100104) "One of the most interesting things I learned about Twitter before I even tried it was that it is like Marmite. It polarises."
10 Things You Need To Stop Tweeting About (100104)
48 Ways to Explain Twitter to Skeptics (100104) "On Christmas Eve with my family, my brother Peter brought up Twitter and expressed skepticism. Rather than try to explain Twitter myself, I tweeted to see what others had to say. I just love the answers that came back! I'm still laughing at some and others are simply profound. Isn't it amazing how nearly 50 people can answer something, each in 140 characters or less, and in just a few minutes you have a better explanation than any one person could possibly think of in a lifetime! And people jumped in from all over (Coogee, Australia and Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic to name two)."
Twitter Search Widget (100104)
Priceless (100104) "Hello World” is a simple game I often play with my 4 year old son (‘Mr 4’). We fire up Twitter, say ‘hello’ from Fremantle, Western Australia, get a globe or an atlas (old school, I know, but it is wonderfully tactile) and wait to see where people are saying hello to us from."

Select Your Widget (100104) "Widgets let you display Twitter updates on your website or social network page
Our widgets are compatible with any website and most social networks. Simply choose one where you would like to include it."
Twimages (beta) (100103) "Revealing who talks to you on Twitter"
Why Twitter Will Endure (100103) "Like many newbies on Twitter, I vastly overestimated the importance of broadcasting on Twitter and after a while, I realized that I was not Moses and neither Twitter nor its users were wondering what I thought. Nearly a year in, I’ve come to understand that the real value of the service is listening to a wired collective voice."
Why My Research is on Twitter (100103) "Twitter represents a new way of communication. After lifestreaming on Twitter for over two years and researching it for over 12 months, I understand the nuances of the communities on it, and have watched it morph as it has moved from being a geek tool to a plaything of the mainstream."
Tweeting with Change Agents (100103) "I suspect that many edubloggers can relate to Will Richardson's admission in What's Changed?, that he's done less blogging and more tweeting in the past 12 months. Though microblogging may be shallow, it has proven to be very accessible to educators, with Twitter being leveraged on both mobile devices, and school computers."
The Listorious 140 Twitterers (100102) "Who's Been on Twitter the Longest? We only include people who are active on Twitter and that someone's added to a list."
Twitter's Most Influential Topics of 2009 (100102) "Klout today released its Top 2009 list of the topics that captured the attention of the most influential voices and their communities on Twitter."

Best Job Application Ever: Twitter Genius "if this application is more than 600 characters or so, you’re done. And you better be damn well ready to talk briefly about how you can best self-promote, or you’re done. Also, it’s probably better if you don’t want too much money. But don’t say why, keep it short."

5 Reasons Why Twitter is my Dream Machine (091230)
Twiducate "is a free resource for educators. Developed in 2009, our goal is to create a medium for teachers and students to continue their learning outside the classroom. We attempt to fill a need for a more educationally focused, safe venue for teachers, schools, and home learners in a social networking environment. We understand that many social networking sites exist, however the control of content is limited for teachers. Also, many of these social networking sites are continuously being blocked by school firewalls and administrators. Our service proudly differs in that only teachers and students may view classroom posts, thus creating a private network for you and your students and a safer online learning environment." (091230)

Twitter 2009 Retrospective "For me 2009 goes down as the year other people discovered Twitter. It went from a small and fairly intimate place to hangout to a busy bustling intersection of information, commerce and conversations. It felt almost like moving from a small town to a big and somewhat impersonal city." (091230)
