 I give a strawberry cake for my twitter followers :)

Now let's see more informations about twitter 
Amazingly, it's five years ago today that the first tweet was sent and twitter have a Tiny team .  Over these years, Twitter has matured and made an impact in the areas of social responsibility, politics, sports, media, and more. The people who use Twitter have made it what it is today, and on our fifth birthday, it's the people that make Twitter special who we are celebrating.

There are now more than 400 full time employees working at Twitter. In the last year alone we have made huge progress towards stability and performance. This work sets us up to continue innovating but it also allows us to build a profitable business on a strong foundation. We are in a position now which allows us to continue serving and delighting everyone who relies on Twitter to connect them to that which is meaningful for another five years and beyond.

Twitter users now send more than 140 million Tweets a day which adds up to a billion Tweets every 8 days—by comparison, it took 3 years, 2 months, and 1 day to reach the first billion Tweets. While it took about 18 months to sign up the first 500,000 accounts, we now see close to 500,000 accounts created every day. All of this momentum and growth often pales in comparison to a single compassionate Tweet by a caring person who wants to help someone in need.
Now let's see some twitter statistics Today, on every measure of growth and engagement, Twitter is growing at a record pace. Here are some numbers:

  • 3 years, 2 months and 1 day. The time it took from the first Tweet to the billionth Tweet.
  • 1 week. The time it now takes for users to send a billion Tweets.
  • 50 million. The average number of Tweets people sent per day, one year ago.
  • 140 million. The average number of Tweets people sent per day, in the last month.
  • 177 million. Tweets sent on March 11, 2011.
  • 456. Tweets per second (TPS) when Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009 (a record at that time).
  • 6,939. Current TPS record, set 4 seconds after midnight in Japan on New Year’s Day.


  • 572,000. Number of new accounts created on March 12, 2011.
  • 460,000. Average number of new accounts per day over the last month.
  • 182%. Increase in number of mobile users over the past year.


  • 8. 29. 130. 350. 400. Number of Twitter employees in Jan 2008, Jan 2009, Jan 2010, Jan 2011 and today.
The people who use Twitter make it special because for any interest we might have, somebody is tweeting about it. We're lucky to have so many people using Twitter in so many interesting and important ways. 
Happy Birthday, Twitter—and thank you.

Read more on our  blog .

#edtech20 project Teaching web 2.0 safety in the clouds

is my favorite social curation tool in 2010 and here you can make a PLN -  social curation community. It is the social way to discover, organize and share the stuff you like on the web.Use Pearltrees to keep the stuff you like on the web at hand, to discover new things in your areas of interest and to share them with your friends.
Pearltrees game play is pretty simple, but its potential is limited solely by your imagination:
Pearl the stuff you like on the Web.Organize your pearls into your own pearltrees.
Discover other users' pearltrees with the search box or the minipearl.
Team up with others to curate the pearltrees you like
Pick pearltrees when you are interested in them and follow their updates
Share pearltrees by embedding them on your blog or on other social services .

2.Eegoes is a new tool   described as a “new generation” of social networking aims to provide a user-friendly and innovative platform for social interaction, that lets users filter their content through keyword settings to deliver only the information most relevant to their interests.Users can customize their views, to see “Everything”, or only view “Videos”, “Pictures”, “Notes”, “Events”, “Links” or “Interests.” Users can connect via Facebook or Twitter and sync their accounts or establish parts of their account as private and public through user-friendly controls.I invite all to join and collaborate in  #edtech20 Eegoes group . 

3.Facebook is the best way to make a PLN and to collaborate in   groups and make facebook  pages giving people the power to share and make the world more open and connected. Facebook it is also an incredible learning tool in XII Century Education . Teachers and educators  can utilize Facebook for class projects, for enhancing communication and collaboration  and for engaging students in a manner that might not be entirely possible in traditional classroom settings. On facebook you can add photos , videos , presentations and much , much more applications and for this reason I invite you to join and post on main page of #edtech20 project with 350 fans .

4.LinkedIn is a tool where you can make a PLN  Professional Learning Network and was built for professionals who want to use their existing and future social networks to build a career. LinkedIn is not like MySpace and Facebook. It’s not where teenagers post photos , videos and presentations  with their activities
The LinkedIn profile is exactly like a resume, but it holds a lot more information. It includes fields for education, jobs, experience, interests, awards and honors, and personal information. Most people use LinkedIn to “get to someone” , to connect and collaborate in order to make a sale, form a partnership, or get a job.
I invite you all to join free and  collaborate in #edtech20 LinkedIn group .

5.Diigo has become one of the most popular social bookmarking services used by educators and it is a gr8 opportunity for Delicious and I like very much this edtool . Diigo offers good tools for highlighting, annotating, bookmarking, and sharing what you like on the Internet. Diigo is an effective tool for teaching because Diigo's features allow teachers to highlight critical features within text and images and write comments directly on the web pages, to collect and organize series of web pages and web sites into coherent and thematic sets, and to facilitate online conversations within the context of the materials themselves.  Diigo also allows teachers to collaborate and share resources among themselves. Diigo is much more than a simple web annotation or social bookmarking service -- it is a new kind of online research and collaborative research tool that integrates tags and folders, highlighting and clipping, sticky notes, and group-based collaboration, enabling a whole new process of online knowledge management, learning, and teaching in the information age.Diigo group #edtech20 With Version 5.0, Diigo moves one step further towards its vision of providing the best cloud-based  personal information management (PIM) service that enables users to collect, highlight, access and share a variety of information, on a variety of devices.
6. Wiggio, you can share and edit files, manage a group calendar, poll your group, post links, set up conference calls, chat online and send mass text, voice and email messages to your group members. Each group member can define how they want to keep informed of group activity. For a complete overview of what your group can do on Wiggio, click on the following video:

7.Cloudworks, a social networking site for sharing and discussing learning and teaching ideas and designs. The work is underpinned by an ongoing programme of empirical work, aimed at getting a richer understanding of educational design processes. Data collected includes interviews, surveys, observations, web statistics, focus groups, as well as gathering data at workshops and other events we run. The empirical data informs the three main strands : representing pedagogy, informing the design process and facilitating the sharing and discussing of designs. I invite you all to join free #edtech20 Cloudworks group

Ning is the world's largest platform for creating social websites. Top organizers, marketers, influencers, and activists use Ning to create an online destination that weaves social conversations in content and inspire action.  Unfortunatelly Ning network isn’t free but I keep the #edtech20 PLN where I wan to collaborate with teachers worldwide . I like Ning Ning because  made it easy for members to get involved and submit their own photos, videos, blog posts , collaborate in the forum and you can add many apps on your Ning network .

Building a powerful #PLN using gr8 #edtech20 tools in XXI Century Education Part #aplanet

I like very much to discover new #edtools and share them with my #edtech20  PLN ( Passionate Learning Network )and for all of you a big Starwberry #edtech20 CAKE :) . If you enjoy my post please add comments and suggestions .
I am very proud because I am a associate teacher in #aplanet project .

I want to thank you all for your kind greetings on twitter @web20education  and specially to @shellterrell ; @tamaslorincz   iPad_storytime and on facebook .
Short introduction . 3 years ago I begin my adventure in a web 2.0 world  beeing founder in some eTwinning projects . Here is my first website . 
In 3 years I  have evolved a lot and now I am a Social Media and Web 2.0 addicted curator in XXI Century Education @web20education  I am Glogster Edu Ambassador , SymballoEdu Ambassador and I am very proud because  because my #edtech20 free  project in the clouds for teachers worldwide ,, Teach , learn and play in XXI century using in a e-Safety way tools and applications web 2.0 and social media in education 2.0 " was finalist in ELEARNING AWARDS 2010  . Now let's see what is a PLN , how to build a #edtech20 PLN and what are the best edtools to make a PLN in XXI Century Education

Personal Learning Networks consist of the people a learner interacts with and derives knowledge from in a Personal Learning Environment.( systems that help learners take control of and manage their own learning ) . An important part of this concept is the theory of connectivism developed by George Siemens and Stephen Downes. Learners create connections and develop a network that contributes to their professional development and knowledge .  The learner does not have to know these people personally or ever meet them in person.The following is an excerpt from Dryden's and Vos' book on learning networks:"For the first time in history, we know now how to store virtually  all humanity's most important information and make it available, almost  instantly, in almost any form, to almost anyone on earth. We also know  how to do that in great new ways so that people can interact with it ,  and learn from it." . You can read more about PLN here , here , here ,   here  or  here
I think  all the teachers should build a PLN because in collaboration with other teachers they can share knowledge in groups and using web 2.0 and social media they can bring edreform in XXI Century Education . I am member in many #edtech20 PLNs , but unfortunatelly most of the teachers only use the informations and tools from the networks  and don't collaborate with other teachers and for this reason you can read : Collaboration in #edtech20 PLN . Ok now lets see the gr8  #edtech20 tools to build a PLN in  XXI Century Education in my  next blog  post .
