1952, Tweety Bird has spotted the sneaky Sylvester and broke out into a song about what he saw. I have included one of the many different versions via YouTube of Tweety singing his little song.
Now fast forward to 2011, Tweety would now tweet, “I Taut I Taw a Puddy Tat.” By using Twitter Tweety could let his friends and followers know that Sylvester was a foot in less than 140 characters. His friends could twitter back and give him some advice or follow his updates as how he foiled Sylvester.
This blog is dedicated to: PLN Challenge #3: Using Twitter to Build Your PLN. I heard about Twitter a few years ago on NPR and thought it was just something that I wouldn’t use. Why would I? Well, I have started an account and I am just getting my feet wet about using Twitter. I am using Twitter to expand my PLN and to get new ideas. Kathleen Morris, a second grade teacher and blogger from Victoria, Australia wrote a great explanation about Twitter. Click here to read her description.
So I created my account. I wanted my blog name but it was taken. So I thought why not use my name and art. That worked and now you can follow my tweets at @MrsBerryArt. I have set up my blog to give twitter updates automatically. I set up my account and updated my bio information. There was only enough space for 160 characters but I fit it in. I also changed my background to one of my paintings. I clicked on a few people that I want to follow to see how this works. There is a spot for messages. There are a few art companies that I know of that I clicked to follow.
P.S. Tweety might say, “I Tweeted. I Did, I Did!
