It’s been an interesting session with the FE students today. I’ve been showing them how to use Twitter. Most are 17 to 18 years old and are big users of Facebook, but Twitter has never interested them as they’ve not understood how it works and the point of it.
Once we’d got them started and shown them around and how to tweet, off they went. Now they’re hooked! It was great to see them finding out people and posting tweets and getting excited when people started to follow them or respond to their messages. When they were getting retweets, they were delirious. It was great to see and I hope they do it use and seriously as a way of networking and engaging with others.
