A great list of uses for Twitter in a High School setting.  Could be adapted to Middle School as well.

S. Johnson's curator insight, February 23, 12:53 PM

Foreign language teachers, check out #20 on this list. It offers a couple of ways to use Twitter in language classrooms.

E Burgis's curator insight, March 19, 6:01 PM
For me there was not a whole lot of new ideas in this article. However, for someone who is new to the concept digital literacies I think this article would be helpful in giving some very concrete ways to use this tool. I really love the idea of using it as grammar & vocab builder. It would be perfect for ESL students! It makes me miss my English classroom because I think there are a lot of powerful activities that could be done to check for understanding. For example, you could even have students tweet out their thesis statement & provide their peers with feedback-quickly!

Official Twitter app twitpic has been released for android. If you are a twitter user who likes sharing pictures but fear to use apps that are not authorized ones, here's the good news. You can now download and start sharing pictures over twitter using the official twitpic app for android. Twitpic allows you to quickly share pictures and videos over twitter with your followers. You can edit the pictures before uploading them by adding various effects to enhance the images. You can not only manage your photos and videos but also view the media of different popular twitter users like celebrities or people you follow. Twitpic is fast, efficient and simple application for social networking people.

If you are a die hard instagram fan, you should definitely give twitpic a try and compare both the apps. The reviews however clearly say that twitpic cannot compete with instagram and that instagram is much more user friendly and easy to use app for android. It has always been a war in between applications when it comes to gaining popularity in Android. If the application is simple enough for the user to understand and powerful enough to manage all tasks, then it has high potential and there are much chances of that app being selected by majority.  Twitpic Google Play Description

Twitter se ha convertido en una herramienta de comunicación poderosísima. Algunos estiman que su uso se masificará dentro de 4 años, aunque yo creo que a esta estimación le sobran por lo menos dos años.
