Twitter is a Social Networking site that you can use for classes, assignments, updates, etc. I am posting a link to Dembe's Twitter account:
Twitter is easy to use and set up. You can post messages and updates directly on the site or via your cell phone and/or IM. However, these controls need to be set up in advance.
It seems like a great way to update classes on events and class updates, such as being late or stuck in traffic. It is a cleaver tool, but not a necessary tool for online classes or even SL. I can see it being used very creatively with SL and education, but within reason and caution. It might be more functional to post updates on projects or activities for group exercises.
