My fear with "Microblogging" is that it interfers with the educational setting (classroom). I am constantly on my students because they are attempting to send a text or read a text during class.

On the other hand I do like the different forms of "Microblogging" like text messaging or twittering for the convenience of getting in contact with someone. So I would say I am fairly neutral when it comes to this discussion.

  1. I completely understand your hesitation with microblogging...I survived growing up with out a cell phone or internet. If I had an emergency there was always a way to get in contact with my parents. I hate when students use the excuse that they are talking with their parents on the phone during class so that means its okay. I am even more annoyed when it really is the parents on the phone and they actually think it is okay to talk to their child during school.
