Teacher Review For Twitter

Twitter is both my professional learning network as well as a space inhabited by many of my students.

How I Use It
As an English teacher, I often use Twitter to create parody accounts for some of the literary characters that we encounter throughout the school year. My most popular parody account is for @_therealholden_ , which chronicles the journey of Holden Caulfield from J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye on social media.
My Take
I love this. This is where my students already are. It's much easier for me to go to them than it is for them to come with me in some other digital space.
