|9/7 1 hr.||Completed retweet; it was about twitter for education but mostly about how to use twitter; very helpful for a newbie; located here http://bit.ly/2bXbDrs. One recommendation was to view twitter chat; helped to better understand twitter; #lrnchat and also https://twitter.com/lrnchat. Interesting; questions posted on homesite and discussion, replies on hashtag.|
|9/7 1 hr.||More twitter navigation. One thing I don’t like is that there is no editing options for tweets. Another Twitter experience I still find confusing is this: you click on a hashtag and it provides info that’s very distant from original tweet. Nokia image said “explore from anywhere” from couch and so I thought it had something to do with virtual worlds due to VR hashtag; the HT had nothing to do with nokia; Not sure what the purpose of the tweet was; seems like a poorly connected advertisement.|
|9/3 1 hr.||Goal was to send a tweet with a hashtag; hashtags are subjects of messages; clicking it will find others who have used the same hashtags. My tweet was to let people know I was using a video editor app; created and searched a hashtag to see if others also using this app but came up empty; did a search of app name (powerdirector video editing) in Twitter and that provided list of other users. https://twitter.com/ALLSTAREDU|
|9/2/16 for 1 hr.||Created a Twitter account; thought about purpose of the account. Did some basic navigation; followed edtech@boisestate. The look and user experience is similar to FB.|
