"It helped create an atmosphere where we could feel comfortable communicating with each other and ask any questions that we may have regarding class."
"Twitter was really useful in that if I had a question or a concern about something, I was able to post it and know that I would probably have an answer within the next ten minutes or so. The fact that posts are limited to 140 characters makes communication fairly efficient which, in my opinion, is what allows responses to occur so quickly. There was one time at the beginning of the year, for example, when I was not quite sure when the blog assignment was due. Instead of writing an e-mail and waiting for a response, I simply posted the question on Twitter and received a response right away. It was also a great way to communicate any problems. For instance, group B had their papers due the first day back after Little 5 and many people seemed to be struggling meeting the deadline. In response to the concerns, the Professor used Twitter as a feedback tool and decided to move the due date back by a day to give the students more time. This was definitely an effective way to keep people involved and happy with the class because everyone was able to feel that their opinions were being heard and listened to."
"In some respects, if some kind of event took place, people could instantly send a Tweet to their profile using their mobile phone. The speed at which this information is made public knowledge to their Twitter network is much quicker than waiting for a news report about it later that night on TV."
"In addition, Twitter could also be a great networking tool. If someone is looking for a job, for instance, and posts this on Twitter, they may be friends with someone who could help them out."
