Undoubtedly Twitter is a powerful communication tool. However, using Twitter in the classroom presents challenges. Simply embedding a tweet stream on blogs or webpages is not enough because all tweets from our account are included, not only the ones relevant to students. Embedded tweet streams are also not particularly attractive or informative – especially for the Twitter novices. Though not targeted specifically at academia, RebelMouse presents an interesting solution to this problem, by intelligent curation of social media wrapped in a great design.
