Day 10 of #CU10DoT: Getting the most out of Twitter

Welcome to the last day of #CU10Dot.

We’ve covered lots in the last two weeks and it’s been fun and informative putting the #CU10DoT blog posts together.

This is the third time I’ve run #CU10DoT and each time there have been a number of changes to incorporate. This time included: the increase of Tweet character limit from 140 -280, the very recent introduction of bookmarks and the demise of Storify. I searched for a replacement for Storify and am going to try Wakelet in the future.

I’ve had my submission to PressED – a WordPress Twitter Conference on all things education, pedagogy and research accepted.  My contribution on the topic of #CU10DoT is scheduled for for 11:50 am on March the 29th 2018.

I enjoyed looking for some further reading on the topic of using Twitter for academics to share with you…which leads to the final (and ongoing) activity of #CU10DoT:
