In my previous post, I mentioned that sitting in on Warlick’s session on social networking reminded me that I had already set up a Twitter account, but had not really done anything with it. So I got back in today and added a few Tweets. I even loaded Twitbin so that I can Tweet and read Tweets more easily. But I then realized that I am suffering from what many newbies to this app must feel….LONELY.
I truly feel like I am in an echo chamber. I have clicked on a few people to follow, I can see their tweets, but no one is following me yet – so I am speaking to myself. This is why some people get turned off so quickly – without anyone listening to you, it seems pointless. I, however, am not going to give up so easily. I am appealing to all 5 of you who read this blog – if you are also a Twit, follow my Tweets so that it is not so lonely 🙂
Actually – that sounds more like a match.com pitch rather than an attempt to express my desire to get to know this app better so that I can really think of great ways to use this in the classroom.
