TeachPaperless' EducationPLN Twitter List breaks Top 250 Twitter Lists


Just got the word on this via (of course) someone in my Twitter PLN. Turns out that as of today, I'm 248 on listatlas' list of the top 250 Twitter lists.

Check it out, we're right there with the Wall Street Journal's news list and MTV's 'The Hills' list... which just goes to show how ridiculous these things are.

Nonetheless, the Twitter list has proven rather useful as it lets you hone into certain aspects of your PLN in ways that used to take the jerry-rigging of a Search tab and an extra app. And, more evidence that 21C teachers are prepared to take over the world, just above my list is Shelly Terrell's great ed PLN list.

That's right, you heard it here first, folks: Twitter Ed PLN Lists are the van-guard of geeky ed tech advocates bent on world domination.

I'd say that's a good thing.

And hey: if every teacher follower of Terrell and my feeds followed our PLN lists, we'd be number 2 out of all 250 lists listed!

One way or another, I invite you to join my Twitter List and hope to see you joining in the conversation.


  1. It pays to read a top-250 all the way to the bottom! You'll stay on there as long as twitter doesn't issue list-capabilities to all those entertainment-blog twits. (Though I love those too.)

  2. Shelly,

    I think this is definitely the year of the educator on Twitter! Educators are one of the most interactive and innovative groups that use Twitter. They collaborate, debate, engage, share, learn, help, support, and problem solve all in 140 characters. Thank you for telling me about the list, this is an amazing accomplishment for educators!
