An Easy-to-Search Index of Teachers on Twitter

Twitter can be a good place to connect with other educators to exchange ideas and resources. The trouble is that it is not always easy to filter through all of the accounts that Twitter automatically suggests to find the people that you really want to connect with. Thanks to a Tweet from Mark Anderson yesterday I learned about a new way easy-to-search index of teachers on Twitter.

EduTwitter is a site developed by Tristan Kirkpatrick. The site provides a searchable index of educators on Twitter. You can search by name or browse according to speciality area. You can sort search results display users who have the most or the least followers (a great way to discover new voices). Take a look at EduTwitter and see if you can find someone new to follow. And if you don't see your Twitter account on EduTwitter, you can submit your name for inclusion.
