Check out the top five schools using social media well, at least today. These are the usual suspects.

Ever wondered what Hashtags are on Twitter? They're words with #'s in front of them.
Twitter is a great place to find and follow people with the same hobbies and interests as you have. Unfortunately, once you have many followers, it starts to get overwhelming to stay in touch with them all, and make sure the right information goes to the right people.
Making an appearance at a marketing seminar and love to cook? You’ve got a situation then. How do you make sure you’re tweeting details about marketing events to the seminar group while tweeting your favorite recipes to the cooking group?
Enter Hashtags. A hashtag is a symbol – # – followed by a name that can be used to broadcast to a specific group of people. For example, there’s a group for #googlenews, #love and even #kmart.
Hashtags.org shows the most recent group tweets on Twitter and it is also full of information for Newbies on Twitter.
