"Chances are if you are reading this article, you are familiar with Twitter. In fact, it is quite possible that you even found this article through your extensive and knowledgeable Twitter network. Congratulations, you are part of a community that is not only revolutionizing education, but also revolutionizing news, journalism, emergency services, marketing and nearly everything else. But, as with anything popular, there are the doubters. Those that quote “I don’t care what some guy had for lunch today”.
