However, there is something happening with the state of twitter chats that is making me less engaged than in years past, and has put me in a bit of a conundrum. Twitter chats used to make me think. Bigger questions.

Travel, tracking and Twitter

Learning with e's

Within the hour, KLM were on Twitter, responding to my tweet. Twitter is quite a powerful communication tool, but don't just take it from me. An article on the BBC News site also shows why it pays to complain on Twitter. Twitter is seen by many as a valid indicator of public emotional and political temperature. Jobsworths.

Unearthing Diamonds in Twitter

Social Learning

First, I have to confess that I am not a Twitter pro. It was only about six months ago that I set up a “business” Twitter account, and I have only a few tweets and followers to my name.
