Overall, I think that Twitter can be a great tool for teachers that are teaching High school and College. I do not see how Elementary children should be using twitter. A lot of children do not understand how dangerous the internet can be. Another concern I have is if teachers wanted to use twitter, outside of the classroom they are expecting every child to have access to a computer and the internet. You never know what a child's life is at home, and putting something like this in the classroom I think would be okay, but should not be expected to be used outside of the classroom.

Twitter and Me!
When I heard that we were going to have to create a twitter for this class I was not happy about it. I do not have a personal account for a few different reasons. I do use facebook, but that is the only internet social website that I use. However, once we started the account for professional reasons, I started to understand the reasons behind the professional account. I did not like doing the quiz online, only because I am still new to twitter and I am not very quick about it. I understood the concept of it, however being new with twitter makes it very hard to move around on the website.
