Twitter: The IV-drip of Professional Development

Today's required reading:


  1. I'm going to be a bit of a downer here and say that for me Twitter has often been a disappointment. Too often it's an echo chamber of those who agree with me, largely due to the fact that we choose to follow like-minded people (whether implicit or explicit). For me, I've been challenged more by blogs and by Skype conversations I've had with people.

  2. @John

    All depends who you are following and who you are engaging with. I often seek out folks who I have pretty fundamental disagreements with. Keeps me on my toes. Keeps me sharp.


  3. @ Shelly - I also get the sense that you are better able to engage whole groups and navigate multi-threaded conversations a little better than me. Don't get me wrong. I like Twitter. I'm just not that good at it.
