Week 9 - my experiences of Twitter so far
It annoys me when I don't get the opportunity to take part in the organised session for the week - that happened this week with the twitter session due to school holidays creeping up on me & a 7 year old birthday party etc. I find I don't get to practice with a group of people which them leaves me floundering and time wasting as I try and navigate my way around the new tool. I lose valuable play time and the chance to ask stupid questions - which I know is OK in this environment. I tried to follow the twitter session but found lots of short messages with lots of highlighted words and what appeared to be coded messages. I couldn't really follow any sort of conversation and things seemed to be repeated (eg: Sarah said 3 times that they were starting in 75 minutes) So I am unsure if I am doing it correctly. I would like to understand how to use twitter properly and can see the benefits, so will have to have a good play when time permits.
