In the rush-rush world that we live in, millions of people have migrated their social networking time to Twitter. With only 140 characters available per tweet, users must be concise with their statements. It’s a quick and easy way to read small snips of happenings around the world and find out what your friends are doing with a quick scroll of the screen.

Twitter is a great way to stay up to date in educational matters. Takepart.com created a top 10 list of tweeters to follow. For more information on each individual, go to http://www.takepart.com/article/2012/06/13/top-10-education-experts-follow-twitter .
