My first initial interactions with Twitter was not positive, and it took me quite a bit research to beginning understanding how to understand its uses.  Since then, it has been my goal to help fellow educators unlock the "mysteries" of this amazing educational tool. In this post and my Google Document, I have tried to make it easier for anyone starting out with Twitter to experience success as they take baby steps in becoming proficient in the most amazing resource for connecting and collaborating with educators all over the world!

Best of Luck!
