The most annoying mistake teachers make on Twitter

Wednesday 28th August 2013

"Using the same account for both work-related tweets and personal tweets."

Some people genuinely have interesting topics to tweet about - perhaps they're developing a new educational product or recommend useful links related to teaching. Then they're off sending lots of tweets about mindless trivia that few are interested in - for example what the kids are up to or minute-by-minute updates on the football. It's very annoying. The solution is simple. Use multiple Twitter accounts where each account has a specific focus. A program like TweetDeck will manage multiple accounts just fine!

Yes, I've been occasionally guilty of this, though hopefully not to the extent of driving people crazy!
