    Rockguy, I didn't get Twitter the first time I tried it, either. Will Twitter go away? Probably, eventually, but because something "better" will come along. But, I bet knowing Twitter will make it easier to transfer to the new one.

    Here's another "Why Twitter" article: http://azk12.org/blog/archives/46-1...now-to-Get-Started-with-Twitter.html#extended

    Don't take me as a Twitter freak, just take me as someone that has found a valuable resource for making me a better teacher and wanting to share that with other teachers.

    Here, we are preaching to the choir, even when the choir members are singing in different keys sometimes. :)

    On Twitter, we're reaching the masses.

    I am VJasztal.

    I have found Twitter to be more useful since I have added a widget to put it on the front page of my website. Check out http://www.teachingvision.org, and look toward the bottom left to find the widget.

    Tweetdeck was my saver for Twitter.

    I'm so bad! I only use Twitter for socialization purposes with my fellow Blockheads (New Kids on the Block fans!) :wub:

    I love it though, it becomes almost like a chatroom when a bunch of people are on at the same time.

    Originally I got the account for myself, but when I realized I could put the widget on my website, I decided to make 90% of my posts about teaching. Those who want to hear about me know where to go. :)

    Tweetdeck is an application you download to your computer (free). I like that I can put the people I follow into groups. So much easier to manage.

    This can explain it: http://tweetdeck.com/beta/features/
