What’s the wrd on microblogging?

Twitter isn’t just the latest craze in short message communication. It doesn’t merely exist so one can inform the world of what they’re doing in real time. Twitter’s utility has a hold on the academic world, be it in English-language learning classrooms or in libraries. To teach cultural competence and for conference reporting.
