(GL and np) The features of a Social Networking website are not limited to sending messages to our friends, uploading pictures, and "hashtagging" our tweets. Not many people know that they can also be good for finding new information, and getting news updates. I use my Twitter account to follow Education Professionals, The Illinois State Board of Education, the US Dept of Education, as well as several members of my school. These individuals often Tweet about education, and they also often tweet helpful links, especially as we enter a new age of education. If you are interested, here are some good individuals and organizations to follow:
