Why I Use Twitter...to Get Work Done

One of the main reasons I use Twitter is because I can have conversations with people all over the world and learn great new ways of doing things in my profession.

Below is an example.

I have been working on a blog post talking about the idea of using principles of MOOCs as a learning method inside a company to develop people. I wanted to find examples of companies that are doing it. It is an emerging method, so I thought it would be difficult to find examples.

One approach I took in finding examples is ask a question on Twitter. Below is my question and a response I received.

What a great response, and I want to thank Rachel for helping me. Her example will enhance my blog post, and most importantly make more concrete a topic that is just beginning to become known to early adopters.
