This is a great blog, but unfortunately I was unable to find the authors complete name. I only found her username of techdiva29 and first name that I believe is Shelly. The best part of this blog is that the author gave examples of using Twitter in different subjects, including Math, Science, History, Geography, Language, and others including a section for general tips.
