Worth Retweeting (week ending 4/30/2011)

Posted: May 7, 2011 in Collaboration, Community Management, Learning, Social Learning, Social Media, Social Media & Learning

Most of what I learn these days I learn via Twitter – not because of what is in the 140 characters themselves but mostly because of the articles and other content found in the links provided. If someone ever says to you “You can’t teach or learn something in 140 characters,” they are dead wrong. Follow the links. Feast on the filling, satisfying substance found there.

Below are 100 tweets I deemed worthy of retweeting from among the thousands perused for the week. I actually retweeted more than 100 for the week, but I’ll limit these blog summaries to 100. To see them all, you’ll need to go to my Twitter stream at http://twitter.com/jeffkross.  Enjoy.
