3rd Twitter Anniversary - February 25, 2009-February 25, 2012

Wow, I can hardly believe that it was three years ago that I was struggling to understand Twitter. Today I can't imagine my life without it. February 25 is my Twitter anniversary. I joined on that date in 2009 and have blogged about my anniversaries here and here.

Here is an update on my Twitter stats:
       Followers 5,139
       Following 1,240
       Tweets 16,008
       Listed 341
I know my number of tweets has increased dramatically this year due in part to being a moderator for #4thchat on Mondays at 7 pm CST. I also try to participate in #elemchat on Saturdays at 4 pm CST. Some of the other ed chats I ave contributed to are #edchat, #ntchat, #gtchat, and #tichat when I can fit them into my schedule.

If you are on Twitter but can't remember when you joined, you can find out by typing your Twitter handle into When Did You Join Twitter. If you are not on Twitter, I can't imagine why not. Everyday I get to learn new things from my PLN (personal learning network) and each week I do my own professional development hours on topics that interest me.

When is your Twitter anniversary? Can you share one reason why teachers should be on Twitter?
