One of my coworkers from last year searched her name on Twitter and found a number of very rude tweets about her from students. She has a pretty unique name and it was very easy for her to find them. She ended up getting quite paranoid and couldn't stop searching the site to see what kids had posted about her (good or bad). I have since encountered several other teachers who have discovered that it is very easy to search the site to see what is being said and occasionally check. I personally avoid the site altogether and do not even let myself fall into the trap of checking, but have done so before. What do you all think about this? At what point should students be disciplined for what they post? What is and is not appropriate? Are any of you "guilty" of searching social media for comments about you/your classes as well?
