Since its introduction a few years ago, hashtag has absolutely transformed the micro-blogging sphere allowing users to create communities around content. Twitter now is teeming with all kinds of hashtags and there is almost a hashtag for every event. The huge potential of hashtags is particularly felt in the education sector. Hundreds of education-related hashtags are active in Twitter. These virtual communities or what James Gee called affinity spaces, provide teachers and educators with unprecedented professional development opportunities for free and at the comfort of their couches.
