SOCIAL NETWORKS | Evan Williams on the Voices of Twitter Users | TED.com

Monica Mirza's insight:

Creator of Twitter, Williams explains how it had first been a "side-project" he kept on developing -realizing after all, Blogger had also been a side-project before taking 5 or 6 years of his life, full time ! From the initial purpose to the drifting uses it developed, Twitter's history : quite interesting.

Languages currently spoken on Twitter | ENGLISH - Social networks

Languages currently spoken on Twitter | ENGLISH - Social networks | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it

English may be the most popular language on Twitter, but there's 60 other tongues to connect in. [...]

The most popular language is English (and American English at that), but there’s 61 languages used on Twitter, which means there’s no excuse not to use it to connect with pupils right around the world.

The social media measurement company Semiocasthave created some linkbait which shows the way that language is used on Twitter across the world. English is the most popular (Twitter doesn’t have an easy ride in China, don’t forget), but after that it’s Japanes, Spanish, Malay (who knew?) and Portugese."

Can Twitter Replace Traditional Professional Development ? | Mind/Shift

Can Twitter Replace Traditional Professional Development ? | Mind/Shift | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it

"Twitter and Facebook might soon replace traditional professional development for teachers. Instead of enduring hours-long workshops a few times a year, teachers could reach out to peers on the Internet in real time for advice on things like planning a lesson (or salvaging a lesson that’s going wrong), overcoming classroom management problems, or helping students with disabilities.

Alors, Twitter, c’est de droite ou de gauche ? | Ecrans | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it
" [...] Twitter, comme n’importe quel autre « réseau social », est à la fois de droite et de gauche, ou plutôt ni de droite ni de gauche. Un effet de mode (de genre, de style) y fait fonction de contenu culturel, dans les confuses connotations d’une modernerie, d’une immédiateté et d’une illusion du sens. Cette vacuité est, à droite comme à gauche, la chose la mieux partagée du monde. [...]"

Facebook contre Twitter : le duel des géants des médias sociaux | La Tribune

Facebook contre Twitter : le duel des géants des médias sociaux | La Tribune | EDTECH - DIGITAL WORLDS - MEDIA LITERACY | Scoop.it
Dix ans auront suffi au réseau social cofondé par Mark Zuckerberg pour rallier plus d'un milliard de membres actifs et devenir... une incontournable machine à cash publicitaire. Le célèbre site doit à la fois éviter la potentielle désaffection de ses « amis » et contrer la montée en puissance de Twitter, qui convoite aussi le gâteau publicitaire des médias sociaux (9,5 milliards de dollars en 2013), croqué aujourd'hui à plus des deux tiers par Facebook.

Manuel Pinto's curator insight, February 13, 2014 1:09 AM

Facebook: "La publicité représente 90 % du chiffre d'affaires de Facebook, les micropaiements liés aux jeux ayant tendance à plafonner. Chaque « ami » lui rapporte 2,14 dollars (c'est le revenu moyen par utilisateur au quatrième trimestre), dont 1,94 dollar de recettes pub."
