To Twit or not to Twit?
After a long time I have come back to real life. I have been away on holidays during January and it has taken me a great time to realise that my vacation time is over. Now, that I’m fully back I can start posting in my blog more often.
Today, I will talk about a very interesting and useful tool: Twitter. I have been told about Twitter long ago, but when I entered the page and saw that you have just got to answer the question “What are you doing?”; I thought “How useless”, closed the window and forgot about it.
However, the word Twitter started to appear quite often in my delicious network. Twitter, Twitter and Twitter everywhere. Everyone in the field of education and technology seemed to be giving it a try, and I could be no exception.
I have just been using Twitter for two days and I have to confess that I have become a Twitter-addict (does this word exist already?) Twitter is a great way of getting the latest news in the field that you are interested in. Apart from that, you can receive instant help from people around the world by just typing a questions.
I have tried it and it worked for me. I wanted to know how I can read and post to Twitter through Skype. I posted the question. One of my followers repeated the question and one of her followers provided me the answer after just a few minutes. Would you like to know the answer? Here it is. Very simple:
1) Add the contact twitter4skype to your skype
2) Send this message to the contact via chat:
the name of your twitter account (shift+enter)
the password of your twitter account (shift+enter)
NOTE: Make sure that you send everything in the same message.
You should receive a message that reads twitter4skype registration complete. Now you can start receiving and posting Twitter messages.
I have realised that the key to Twitter is networking so if you are interested you can start following me. I’m sabridv in Twitter. See you there.
