I post questions on Twitter and get great responses. It sort of depends on whom you follow and who,then, follows you. In the last week or so I got wonderful suggestions for links to use in my wiki workshop.

I haven't figured out the attraction to Twitter, but it's blocked here at SBSD. One interesting tidbit from the Wikipedia entry on Twitter:
Twitter collects personally identifiable information about its users and shares it with third parties. Twitter considers that information an asset, and reserves the right to sell it if the company changes hands.

Subject: Twitter in schools
I'm wondering if other schools are blocking Twitter or using Twitter somehow either for communication, public relations, or for instruction.
If you block it, why? Does Twitter pose the same kind of threat and distraction to students as MySpace and Facebook?
If you are using it or know a teacher/school that is, could you send along their urls?
