I deactivated my first Twitter account--under the name ellyn32--for a couple of reasons. My new account is ellyn007--and I am now following fewer people, mostly educators and news people, but enjoying my reads much more than I did previously. There's an addictive tug in the Twittersphere; it's just so easy to grab my phone and spend a few minutes catching up with whatever is out there at the moment. But I do not take Twitter anywhere near as seriously as some people who post dozens and dozens of posts each day, even when they should be working. I am particularly puzzled by the teachers and administrators who have the time to lay on their re-tweet key.
We'll see how it goes this time around.
