Tips

• Begin by following people you already know and trust.

• Explore related resources like Twitter4Teachers (http://twitter4teachers.pbworks.com/), a wiki that helps teachers find other teachers on Twitter in their subject area.

• At least at first, limit your network to a manageable number of followers; be mindful of information-gathering objectives.

• Be generous in “retweeting”—i.e., share messages by others with your followers.

• When appropriate, use hashtags (#literacy) to share your tweets with a larger interest group; but do not overuse hashtags.
