Although Facebook may have the numbers and Pinterest may be the main source of creative lesson content, Twitter is still an extremely popular social media channel for teachers. Many find the semi-formal environment Twitter provides, plus the lower barriers in creating content (anybody can write 140!), offers the ideal place to connect, discuss and discover.
