What Did They Tweet? The New Look!

Beginning of May 2010 edition of the What Did They Tweet weekly series!

Let’s see what our Personal Learning Network (PLN) tweeted about in education and social media. However, I should note that one of the top stories this week on Twitter was about the new way to embed Tweets as posts in 3 easy steps, which was tweeted by @xdamman. This feature is reflected in this post! Do you like the new look? Please let me know in the comments!

  1. Hi Shelly,

    Another great round-up of links as usual, and yes, I do like the new look – think it’s very cool!

    Must give embedded Tweets a go myself… 🙂

  2. Yup, it really looks cleaner and glad to be able to comment again. It was frustrating when I’d read something in the reader and then have something to say to you and then couldn’t 🙂

  3. Shelly, I DO like the new look! I just read through the BlackBird bookmarklet steps – nice, easy ways to embed tweets! Great links with an EXTRA personalized feel to them because of embedded tweets – Thanks for showcasing the tool.

  4. So cool! I love the embedded Tweets! I managed to miss a lot of these great Tweets, thank you (as always) for rounding up the best of the best here.

  5. Fantastic new look, Shelly. I love how you have embedded the tweets on the page. I would really like to be able to do this one day soon! Great resources shared. Thank you very much.
