What do I value about Twitter?
How do I grow with Twitter?
What do I want more of on Twitter?
What do I have to offer my Twitter community?
These are questions I've been asking myself lately. My word for the year is INTENTION and I am feeling a nudge to be more intentional with my Twitter time.
These questions are not heavy, but exciting to me.
One thing I value about Twitter is all the wisdom, expertise, and inspiration I soak up from amazing educators, technologists, readers, writers, thinkers, and doers.
When I ask for help and ideas, help and ideas I get. When I message someone with a question or to make a connection, 9 times out of 10 I get a message back. People encourage me. I feel like I can post things without fear, because people know that I am testing my wings. It truly feels like a community to me.
I grow on Twitter because I follow people who share things peak my interest, open my mind, and point me in curious directions.
Twitter is like a springboard for me. I see something interesting and I bookmark it or investigate. I love it when an idea flies across my feed that I had never thought of before. It gives me energy to learn new things.
I don't know if I can word this right, but think I want more concrete ideas on Twitter. I value pedagogical and/or philosophical conversations. I am open to thinking about things in new ways. (Here comes the but) But I think I am looking for more focused learning for myself. I'm not sure what this will look like, but I am going to have fun figuring it out!
I am also wondering what I love and what I want to share with the world. I've dabbled here and there, and that has been fine. Perhaps that will be my "style" for a while until I find my focus. My hope is to think about this more. I look forward to doing some more thinking about my self and what I truly am passionate about.
To be clear, I 💙 Twitter. I am happy to "waste" time looking and learning. AND I am hoping that some intentionality will enhance my Twitter experience even more.
I look forward to it!
