Chances are if you are reading this article, you are familiar with Twitter. In fact, it is quite possible that you even found this article through your extensive and knowledgeable Twitter network. Congratulations, you are part of a community that is not only revolutionizing education, but also revolutionizing news, journalism, emergency services, marketing and nearly everything else.

But, as with anything popular, there are the doubters. Those that quote “I don’t care what some guy had for lunch today”. Those that are mis-informed, ignorant, or just plain scared of what the Twitterverse might hold.

With this is mind we have put together a Prezi you can use to turn those nay-sayers into converts. Before you know it, you will have an army of new followers preaching their links, news, ideals and goals into your Twitter feed.

 

If you or your school are interested in taking social media and Twitter to the next level, check out our online training course - Introduction To Social Media In Education.

How is your school community embracing Twitter? And what do you use to try and convert the anti-Twits?
