We live in a country where we have opportunity in the palm of our hand. We don’t have to be afraid to express our beliefs, or our passion for something we believe in. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I am thankful for my family, my friends, health and life. Please enjoy this wonderful perspective on being thankful and gratitude.
Twitter is becoming more and more useful as a tool for research and education. One of the newest ways to do this is to join a weekly chat on Twitter. Using a free piece of software and a Hashtag, you can set a time to meet and discuss one or more topics. You can listen and learn or comment on posts that people send in. Some call this a “Micro Meet.”
Just to clarify a Hashtag as defined on Twitter is:
Definition: The # symbol, called a hashtag, is used to mark keywords or topics in a Tweet. It was created organically by Twitter users as a way to categorize messages.
