A Confused "Twitter-er"
Twitter. I never have actually thought I would be getting a twitter at any point in life. But since I have had it, I still don't see that hype about it. I am very confused every time I go on it, but I guess Facebook was the same way the first time I had made an account. I don't really see how I would use it as a teacher. I think that if parents need to contact me they can use my e-mail or a parent-teacher conference would be just fine. I think that if twitter is used in schools that that gives students more of a reason to not pay attention more than they already don't. As a student, I'm not sure if I think it's really important either. I get that you are able to follow people that share the same interests as you, but is the regular internet really going down that much, that no one will use Google and look for the website and just get the information that way. I guess I might have a different opinion if I was into Twitter like a lot of teens my age. It might grow on me, so then I will see how I stand on the matter.
