When I have guest speakers for my social media class, my students (without my asking) would live tweet the class sessions. Lots of time I had no ideas who was following our live tweets with #musm hashtag. Yesterday, Milwaukee restauranteur and AJ Bombers owner Joe Sorge (@AJBombers on Twitter) spoke to my class about how he uses social media and foursquare to generate buzz and engage with his customers. So I gave a shout out about his talk via my foursquare check-in and Twitter. A few minutes after, I got a tweet from UW-Madison News (My alma mater!) asking for a class hashtag.
I was thrilled.
A minute later, I got a request from my social media class alum Mary Schless (@maryschless).
So I asked my students to chime in. Here’s part of their live tweets.
Some might say teaching with Twitter may not be for the faint of heart. So far, I’ve had a positive experience teaching with Twitter and I am so proud of my students.
