I wonder how this approach to parsing Twitter usage extends to the classroom. I have observed that many students groan when I tell them at the beginning of course that they will be using Twitter for peer feedback and evaluation – as if I am assigning them to eat their most-hated vegetable. And yet the same students produce tweets that are thoughtful and thought-provoking. Are students more comfortable using Twitter in class or on their own time? It would be interesting to go back to those same students who complained about it in the first place and determine if they ultimately use it for their own communication purposes or if they delete their accounts as soon as our course is complete.
