Is it writing with 140 characters?

Twitter Goes to College: Students and professors use the micro-blogging service to communicate inside and outside the classroom
By Zach Miners

"Bringing sites like Twitter into an academic environment is a teaching style that has seen a fair share of criticism. Some say that restricting users to 140-character blurbs ruins students' writing skills and destroys their attention spans."

Do you have a twitter account? Let me know, I am kategreatmpls on Twitter--but I don't tweet too much yet...What is your experience?

Hi Kate,
(It's Alyssa from the CI course we took in Fall with Rick Beach).
I'm curious to see what sorts of responses you get to this post. I've been using Twitter more often for work purposes - sharing/seeing what sorts of teaching resources are out there to share. But, I haven't used it in classes yet and am a little reluctant to introduce another tool.
