One thought on “List of Tools/Uses at ODHE National Meeting

  1. Twitter is another way of using social media; whether to communicate about events in another way, direct people to articles, blogs or other information, or simply share a thought to encourage self reflection.

    I was pleased to know that people actually read my tweets (sometimes I do wonder whether it is worth keeping it up) when I was hacked and some tweets got circulated that were definitely not the kind of thing I write about – one about someone spreading malicious rumours and the other about weight loss! Thankfully, within minutes, I was notified by a host of people and was able to change my password immediately to rectify the problem. Twitter has helped me to have face to face conversations I would never have otherwise had.
