Twitter is one of the powerful social media platforms for teacher professional development. I have been doing a lot of research into the use of Twitter as an educational affinity space where teachers and educators get to network together and engage in instructive learning experiences, part of this research is channeled towards my MAEd thesis.
Twitter for Teachers section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning features some interesting resources I have been sharing recently. Today, I am adding another awesome resource to this section. This is a basic graphic created by the folks in Mashable and outlines some popular samples of Twitter lingo. These are mainly acronyms and abbreviations that make their way into tweets. I must admit that I was really surprised to realize that some of these acronyms are all new to me. I invite you to have a look and share with us what you think of it. Enjoy
