I have finally got the value of twitter! Enjoying the immediate responses on current issues. Shouldn’t really admit that I used it while watching the Bachelor … But where I have found it really useful is being able to link through to articles, other commentary and even audio files on a current event. The recent resignation of mark weldon from mediaworks was very interesting on Twitter. Felt that I had quickly got the full range of views and opinions.
SO can really see the attraction of the immediacy and can see how students might like this.
