Twitter is busy tonight!
There are at least two, maybe three (can’t quite keep up) awesome Twitter chats happening around literacy topics. I’m hopping back and forth, trying not to get tangled up in the threads of questions and answers flying through cyberspace. I love reading Twitter chats, although I am not brave enough yet to actually participate. It is fascinating, though, how the ideas bounce back and forth!
But speaking of things bouncing, my next challenge is this—my favorite men’s college basketball team is playing in the Big 12 Tournament tonight and I don’t have access to the cable channel showing the game. So I am going to have to follow it on Twitter.
It’s interesting to read the perspectives and the word choice of the person who is tweeting about the game. There are always lots of fun facts thrown in. But it gets so frustrating when the action gets intense and the tweets come too slowly. (Of course, anything besides “instantly” is “too slowly”). I can’t tell what is happening! There has been more than one occasion where a tweet has come across saying something like “Wow! Game changer!” and I jump up and walk around in circles saying “WHAT? WHAT??” It seems to take forever for the next tweet to come through.
“Watching” basketball on Twitter is not really as much fun as reading the literacy chats…
But I’ll be there! Go Iowa State Cyclones! And to the person faithfully doing the Twitter feed…may your fingers be swift! Keep ’em coming! I’m thankful for every update.
