GroupTweet

I am a big fan of Twitter.  It connects me with educators from all over the globe.  At the same time, several teachers in my district have created Twitter accounts so that they can interact with their students by sharing homework assignments, extra credit, and reminders to name a few.  They were also able to connect with parents who joined Twitter as well. 


Sometimes, the lack of privacy that comes with Twitter can be an issue for teachers, students and parents.  "GroupTweet turns a standard Twitter account into a group communication hub where members can post updates to everyone in the group using direct messages.  When the group account receives a direct message from a group member, GroupTweet converts it into a tweet that all followers can see."  There is a free account with basic options and then a premium account that has some more options to get the most out of the application.
