Rebecca Haas's curator insight, February 19, 2014 1:35 PM

This article makes a lot of valid points that can be used in every day on twitter, and in life in general! First impressions are as important on Twitter, and I think that is something many young professionals may overlook in interview and online. Also, I think many people follow their friends on Twitter, even if they are unrelated to their professional career, which can crowd their feed with social related things, rather than tweets related to education. This article also shows that it is possible to use your tweets outside of the Twitter realm, just by presenting your tweets on other social media sites! This seems to be a great checklist for the young professional, helping us utilize a site we most likely already frequent, but enabling us to turn it into a career-helping venue.

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators | Cuppa | Scoop.it

TWITTER TRANSFORMS EDUCATORS


Before the advent of Twitter, most educators I know had limited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside their building. Some subscribed to listservs or participated in online forums, but these outlets lacked critical mass; teachers also networked at in-person conferences and training sessions, but these isolated events didn't provide ongoing support.

 

Enter Twitter. I've heard many educators say that Twitter is the most effective way to collaborate and that they've learned more with Twitter than they have from years of formal professional development.

 

Here are some of the specific ways educators are using Twitter to collaborate:

Twitter provides a great opportunity to collaborate with educators outside of your local physical community. The exchange of ideas and perspectives can reenergize your career. “Twitter is often just the introduction — the virtual handshake that opens the door to a deeper collaboration”

10 Amazing Social Media Statistics [INFOGRAPHIC]

10 Amazing Social Media Statistics [INFOGRAPHIC] | Cuppa | Scoop.it

Did you know that Twitter is grabbing more new registrations than Facebook, with more than half of its entire userbase compromised of people who have signed up in the last year, compared to just 19 percent for Mark Zuckerberg’s baby?

What if I said that almost a quarter (23 percent) of Facebook users check their account five or more times each day, Twitter users are 33 percent more likely to be Democrats or – sorry Foursquare – that 74 percent of Americans are unfamiliar with the concept of ‘checking in’.

 

These, and several other amazing social media statistics, can be found in the infographic on social media statistics...
