Twitter is a great way to share a “headline” – I use my account (and then Valerie’s) to spread the word and reach my audience.
Once I have attracted my audience I just have to entertain them!
I can use a link like this, Tunisia Quiz, to send my students to an activity, quiz, etc……. or insert photos to add interest!
I can also send them to interesting facts and figures about subjects we’re discussing in class which I sometimes turn into a quiz!
It is also interesting to add some related hashtag language – I can get a very detailed picture of who is interested in what!
