Twitter is the oldest and most commonly known microblogging service.

It started very simply and, as with many social media services including Facebook and Google, grew out of the way that subscribers used the service.

Educators quickly saw the possibilities and have been very active on Twitter from the beginning. What has emerged is a new way of teaching and learning, one that has resulted in new theories of the way people learn.

Twitter itself has many more ways of discovering Canadian K-12 educators on Twitter. For example, Ontario Teacher Michelle Horst has compiled a number of specific lists of Canadian Educators on Twitter. https://twitter.com/Michelle_Horst/lists
