Twitter

Description

Twitter is now available for Apple Watch.

Tweet, Retweet, reply and favorite in a flash. Quickly see recent Tweets and top trends. Share your location, a song, or your thoughts with a flick on the wrist. It’s Twitter, but littler.
_

Twitter is a free app that lets you connect with people, express yourself, and discover more about all the things you love.

See what your favorite celebs and athletes are chatting about. Be the first to hear breaking news. Catch a glimpse behind the scenes at concerts, sporting events, and more.

Then join the conversation: Tweet your own text, photos, and video to your followers — and maybe make a few fans along the way.

Get inspired. Be social. Even send private messages to friends. All in real time, as big (and little) things happen, from anywhere you happen to be.

    Students today are social – as a faculty member you can harness that strive to be social and create content online by using Twitter! You can create an account under your course name like Prof. Cooper does @ENG102 and post audio lectures, assignment updates, reminders, course announcements, and more by having your students “follow” you. https://twitter.com/ENG102

    Other ideas would be to create a course # and encourage your students to live tweet your lectures – ask your students to tweet out important points, new ideas, something learned, muddiest points, etc. You can see this happen with conferences all the time – GREAT conversation can come from hastag # live tweeting. See a conference tweet conversation by hashtag for the Annual Educause Conference: https://twitter.com/hashtag/EDU14?src=hash

    With a course # you can also include guest speakers – have students submit questions or ideas to guest speakers via twitter before visiting your classroom.

    Don’t forget to talk to your students about expected online etiquette when using Twitter for class – you are helping them learn how to be digitally responsible and flexible depending on their social situation! Happy Tweeting!

    I chose twitter because it is one of the most popular website and applications worldwide. Also, it has a secure privacy for any personal informations and protection from fake accounts or aggressive attitude. Most of the students use twitter to communicate with others. This application could have many accounts that share benefiting informations.
