Twitter 102 for educators

This is the "ultimate" Twitter tutorial which covers how to use Tweetdeck, posted by Tom Whitby at Educators PLN.  This tutorial was made by Josh Stumpenhorst,
who is a 6th grade Language Arts and Social Science teacher in suburban Chicago. (Lincoln Junior High School in Naperville Community Unit School District 203.)  

Steps to getting started with Twitter:
1) Read, read, read  (decide who to follow)
2) Start re-tweeting
3) Start writing a blog and contribute to community; tweet it out.

As you get more fluent with Twitter, Tweetdeck becomes essential.  Twitter support provides written instructions:  click here.
