For all you Tweeps who’ve been around the Twitterverse for a while, you already know that a few of us at Articulate have been active on Twitter for some time now. And as of last week, you can now follow our official account, hosted by Articulate Community Manager Jeanette Brooks, @Articulate.
Yes, Twitter may have its own language, but don’t let that intimidate you. Even if you don’t tweet yourself, you can still sign up for the hot social networking site and follow people or topics you find interesting.
One of the most useful features of Twitter is its near-real time Twitter Search engine, which you can use to search for anything. It’s a great way to solicit feedback on any topic that interests you, ask a question, or simply gauge the Zeitgeist by watching trending topics (e.g., Google Voice is currently a hot topic since Google has started to invite more users to the service, and because Apple has blocked the Google Voice iPhone app from launching in the App Store).
Tom wrote a blog post today about how to leverage Twitter in your learning endeavors: Three Practical Ideas for Using Twitter in E-Learning. The infamous Dr. Werner Oppelbaumer even chimed in on how he uses Twitter:
