is another ubiquitous Web 2.0 communication tool enabling users to "tweet" (post) updates in 140 characters (or less). Some would argue that Martial was the first person to tweet even though Twitter would not be invented until nearly 2,000 years after his death. For users of Twitter, there are those who tweet, those who follow (subscribe to those who tweet), and those who do both. Classicists have gotten into Twitter, too, and some are even using it for Latin education.
I had the chance to do a one-hour workshop on "Tweeting for Classics" at the recent American Classical League conference hosted at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Below is my 2-sider handout containing an annotated list of *some* Twitter profiles of those people who actively tweet for Classics, specifically for Latin: TweetingForClassics.pdf
Apologies if you are not on my handout!
If you tweet for Classics and for Classics classes, please leave a comment about your experience with the Twitter platform in the Comments area below. How do you use Twitter for Classics (both tweeting and following)?
