Joining the Math Twitter Blogosphere . . . Finally

I'm so excited to announce that I've finally tapped into the wonders of Twitter. For the past few years, I was reluctant to join because I was unsure of how Twitter worked and it's inherent rules and procedures. However, through a community of teachers that I recently became acquainted with, I was encouraged (a.k.a. forced) to join the Twitter world as a condition of participating in the group. I am a true believer that all things happen for a reason and was actually excited about my gentle push shove into the Twitterverse. Admittedly, it's been a very positive experience. There are so many math conversations happening all over Twitter. There is actually something called the Math Twitter Blogosphere (#MTBoS) with a bunch of people talking about and sharing all things related to math. There's even a cool math chat with a bunch of elementary math people on Thursday nights (#ElemMathChat) where everyone is talking about math. It was intimidating at first, but after participating in my first one, I think I'll feel more comfortable next time. So cool! I've met some awesome math people-- even some whose books I have read (#starstruck). All in all, joining the Twitterverse has given me a new outlet for loving and learning about math. Thank you @bstockus and #rrmathrocks! Check me out on Twitter!


  1. Shametria, I am so glad you have found Twitter and #elemmathchat! Don't let the fast pace worry you. I would suggest using either the Tweetdeck or Hoitsuite app to stream the chat more effectively. I will watch for you on Thursday and we can have our own side chat!

  2. I'm okay with a little shoving from time to time. :-)

    Thank you for embracing the missions and putting yourself out there on Twitter. I especially appreciate you taking time out of your Thursday evening to join us for #ElemMathChat. I hope you're able to continue connecting with great educators online to share ideas and learn from one another.

  3. I love that we are using a twitter as a tool to learn more!
