Twitter Makes You Better At School?
I have been arguing forever that as twitter becomes more ubiquitous over time, eventually it will so corrupt our ability to communicate that no one will be able to talk without stopping after 120 characters. Apparently I was wrong
"I have no retweets. All is darkness."
The website Mashable reported that a college professor at the University of Michigan recently released a study that suggests not only that students who use Twitter are more engaged and have higher grades, but that Twitter itself is becoming an entirely new "literary practice." I don't actually know what that means, but it sounds very important.
Need more proof that Twitter makes you smarter? If you think about it,technically, all this man does is Tweet.
Professor Christina Greenhow is taking this phenomenon so seriously she's actually teaching a class requiring students to have Twitter so they can use it in class. Imagine a teacher wanting to tweet in class?
"Shouldn't Jenny not be tweeting about how much she likes Gwen Stefani's earrings in class?" It's OK. It's making her smarter."
Twitter is now responsible for the Green Revolution in Iran, the Arab Spring, Occupy, and making kids better at school. What can't Twitter do, you might ask? Nothing. Soon Twitter will be responsible for finding intelligent life on Mars, ending all war, making you a peanut butter sandwich so it's already ready when you get up in the morning, and pleasing your wife physically when you have to work late.
Absolute photographic proof that Twitter makes you a better person.
