I am presently working on a thesis proposal due next month on the Use of Twitter in Academia and it is really driving me insane. I am still in the literature review phase and it seems like the world is falling apart around me but I have to pull myself up and keep boosting my moral to keep working on it. I have accumulated tons of resources including academic articles and journal papers on the use of Twitter in education and through the data mining I am doing , I come across a lot of new ideas, tools, and tips on how to use twitter for academic purposes. I will be sharing with you these resources over the next coming weeks but for now , let me introduce you to an arsenal of great Twitter apps for your iPad. I am thinking that these apps are among the best you can find for your iPad, check them out below and share with us your suggestions and comments. Enjoy
