I still doubt the effectivness of tweeting when compared to other social networking tools. Twitter is somewhat crude and lacks collaboration features which are found in other tools.
On the other hand it was interesting to read articles in which it was highlighted how Twitter was used in different educational settings;
- Twitter Tweets for Higher Education by Alan A. Lew http://web20teach.blogspot.com/2007/08/twitter-tweets-for-highereducation.html – especially interesting is part about Twitter spam (from Karolina)
- Alan’s del.icio.us bookmarks about Twitter: http://delicious.com/alanalew/twitter (from Karolina)
