3 Great Teacher Tools for A Better Twitter Chat

Today's post is a direct answer to a question one of you has asked me a few days ago about the tools one can use to facilitate participation in Twitter chats.

1- Tweetdeck

TweetDeck makes it easier for you to track the real-time conversations taking place in Twitter. It brings more flexibility and insight through a customizable layout that lets you keep up with the people and topics that matter most to you. And, you can join the conversation by tweeting, sharing photos and links to news stories, and more.

2- Tweetchat

this is another great tool to use to participate in Twitter chats. It basically focuses on Hashtags and those hashtags allow TweetChat to connect you with people talking about similar things. TweetChat helps put your blinders on to the Twitter-sphere while you monitor and chat about one topic. Choosing a hashtag directs you to a TweetChat room.Each tweet automatically gets the hashtag added and the room auto-updates.
 You can use the "User Control" area to feature people you like or to block spammers. "Smart pausing" has been added so when you scroll down the page, it will not refresh, helping you avoid replying to the wrong person.

3- Twitterfall

Twitterfall is a  website designed to allow users of the social networking site Twitter to view upcoming trends and patterns posted by users in the form of tweets. The project was founded by David Somers and Tom Brearley, computer science students at theUniversity of York.
