Long gone are the days of thinking of Twitter as an utter and useless waste of time! Professionals are using it to search on hash tags affiliated with conference events, and there is also new interest in Twitter Chats. At the fall MEMO conference in St. Cloud, several presenters/keynotes mentioned Twitter Chats as a resource they used for learning and networking. Indeed, these chats allow educators from anywhere in the world to come together at appointed times on a regular basis to talk about what is important. If you are new to the field, Twitter Chats are also a nice way to get your name and face out there to gain authority and visibility with your peers. Get connected and stay informed!

The Edudemic blog offers a great post on the Top 50 Education Twitter Chats (And How to Use Them).
