My Town Tutors has been using twitter to connect with parents, teachers, and educators for the last two years. Along the way, we have made some mistakes, but also have learned some valuable lessons. Hopefully our experiences might be useful to others.
We also went a little crazy with our New England account @mytowntutorsNE. Just the other day they unfollowed EVERY SINGLE Twitter Account: EXTREME Twitter Tip: Unfollow Everyone!
We are going to try 2 experiments:
- @mytowntutorsNW will follow one account a week for a year, nothing more, so we will be very selective in our choices – 52 accounts in 52 weeks.
- @mytowntutorsNE is going to be overly aggressive and follow one account a day for a year – 365 accounts in 365 days.
Is less more? We will soon find out. Please follow both accounts to see the progress and results.
There are some great options out there for who to follow including many accounts that we list in the following blogs. You can’t go wrong with any of the accounts.
Elite Education Blogs
Top Guest Blog Authors for 2012-2013 School Year
Perfect Twitter Accounts in Education
Who are your 1st 52? We will tell you ours over the next few weeks.
My Town Tutors is a website that connects parents with teachers who tutor. If you are a teacher who tutors, for a limited time, you can register for FREE by using promo code: usteachers. Teachers set the hourly rate and keep 100% of the fees! One of our teachers made $5,000 last year tutoring.
It is FREE for parents to search for a teacher in their area. Please help us find ONE MORE teacher who tutors!
