Top 50 Education Tweets of 2011

Jan 17, 2012 Shanon Woodruff, Distance-Education.org Columnist | 1 Comments

Another year has come and gone and with it almost a trillion tweets. From the funny to the serious, the insightful to the inane, it was an exciting year for education and Twitter. As Twitter continues to grow and with it the number of users who love education, the task of finding the 50 top education tweets is becoming a very difficult one. But, we do love a challenge.

So over the past 12 months we have kept a long list of the tweets that have made us laugh, think, and feel inspired. We spent countless hours scouring through them all and have chosen a list that encompasses the whole of education on Twitter in 2011.

So, here is our list of the Top 50 Tweets in Education for 2011:
