In these days of the push-pull of privacy vs public social networking, I sympathize with newbies who want to get on board and use new technology, but are a bit timid when putting out their information online. Twitter is one of those tools and I think the purpose of filling out the profile is so that people can see what you’re about. As Twitter grows in popularity, I am finding it harder to manage who to follow. Kevin Jarrett twittered yesterday about filling out your profile information and reading A Teacher’s Guide to Twitter.

There are some amazing people to follow. I have learned so much from the folks in this network, I encourage everyone to jump in!
