I have found lots of new things (blogs mainly) to read and to add to my google reader using Twitter recently. Two of the blog posts I recently read talk about the importance of twitter to a PLN (especially concerning #edchat on Twitter). I could not agree more! I have learned so much and been "granted access" to so many great ideas and resources by participating in Twitter. Notice that I said PARTICIPATING and not just reading. Even though I am not sure that I directly did anything that lead me to find new blogs for me to follow, I do feel like that by interacting and feeling like "part of a group" I am exposed to more options. I like to see what people retweet and then go check out the person they retweeted to see what I might be able to gain by making that connection (that sounds a bit selfish, but . . . ).
Here are the ones I found recently to add to my list of things to read . . .
*Emory's "Why Tweet" Blog Post and Presentation do an excellent job of providing information about using Twitter
