Twitter: The short and sweet way to share information

Using social media can be all consuming and requires time and focus  Also, it can be daunting to try and keep up with the newest ideas in your field and spend the required time on the process.  However, there is a social media option that not only helps a person stay current but is fast and easy, Twitter.  https://twitter.com/

Twitter offers a wide range of interactive options and presents a vast number of platforms including: entertainment, politics, business, culture and importantly for me, education.  There are many great Twitter accounts that offer relevant information specifically in the area of learning disabilities and being involved really places you directly in the loop of learning.  Twitter allows you to organise your interests the way you wish and follow up to 2000 different people, groups or concepts.  This makes for a forum that offers quick interaction with the world on a number of levels and places you in a world-wide conversation on special needs and learning issues.  Twitter is fantastic!
