"In addition, I also got to learn more about my peers through this tool. For example, I learned what they did in their spare time, what movies they liked to see and I learned campus events that were going on as well. This tool was quicker to get answers from my peers and the instructor since I could direct messages to whoever I wanted versus in the forums."
"I feel like if more of my peers outside of this class used twitter that I would keep my account. In addition, I feel twitter needs to do better advertising so it is more accessible to users. I asked my friends outside of this class and none of them knew what twitter was. I don’t think twitter currently has any advertising to draw in new users, so that is something that I think they need to work on."
"Overall, I found twitter useful to get in touch with my classmates. It was a lot quicker to ask my questions on twitter then try to access the forums. In addition, it was easier to get quick information on IU events, and learn information about my peers."
