Twitter is a micro-blog. It pushes out messages that are limited to 140 or fewer characters (to fit most SMS standards for text messaging). As with most tools, an RSS feed is also generated. Tweets (Twitter messages) from the instructor can provide “just in time” updates on current topics and timely reminders, and can prompt students to assignments and related materials. A key advantage is that this reaches many clienteles where they do most of their communicating – via text messages.
