Whalen's weekly reason for joining Twitter...
It can be used however you want to use it. Tons of people use text messaging inappropriately for cyber-bullying or sexting and yet I've never heard anybody declare that they don't use text messaging because of it. Yet, Twitter - which is in essence text messaging on steroids, gets a bad rap because of the belief that social media is evil/weird/time-consuming/not real life/fil in your own reason. SOME people misuse social media. But SOME people are always going to do inappropriate things regardless of the venue. We as educators and professionals owe it to ourselves to use the resources available on Twitter and owe it to our students to show them how to appropriately use such a tool. If you've kept putting off getting on Twitter because of some of these ideas, I ask you to utilize that growth mindset and at least tell yourself that you just aren't ready YET.
I wouldn't be so relentless if it hadn't changed my life for the better.
