Keeping up to date with technology is vital for a Learning Technologist.
How I use Twitter
I use Twitter to follow academics in the field of Training and Development.
The hash tag (#) is beneficial for events, I use the hash tag as a back channel for conferences that I cannot attend, as well as to catch up on discussions before and after an event.
There are many free links to resources via people I follow.
