What is your advice about? Using twitter for CPD
1: Remember that 140 characters means that thoughts are usually expressed with greater certainty and fewer nuances than is genuinely the case.
2: Join in scheduled twitter conversations that are of interest to you (either by subject eg. #rechat or position in school eg. #nqtchat)
3: People tend to follow those who they instinctively agree with. Follow others too and actively engage in professional debate.
4: Remember you are publishing your thoughts publicly – don’t write something that would allow a student or colleague to be identified.
5: There are some very good ‘self publicists’ on twitter who may/may not have a back-story they are not telling! Lots of followers may not mean good advice!
