My last 10

Recently, Alec Couros issued this challenge:

If you were summed up by your last 10 tweets or FB posts, what would that look like?

That looked like an interesting challenge.

So, I dug into my Tweeting history and pulled out the past 10 Twitter messages

So, what do I see?

  • I follow a lot of smart people.  I have a few created messages that take the best of a Twitter list and puts in newspaper format and highlights some of the contributers.  There are five of these generated daily and all five are great to read.  
  • I had a give and take about the content of an article I had read about browser choice.
  • I follow “LIbraries” as a category on Flipboard and there was a recent article about book weeding.  I’ve had many a discussion with colleagues about Dora so was interested in just the headline.
  • Google Classroom is a popular LMS-ish platform for schools that have adopted Google for their classroom.  This was an interesting approach to a guide.

I could go back further but this was the latest 10.  I like what it looks like.  I know it’s obvious or I’d change up what I do.

Had I gone back further, you’d run into a post announcing a new blog post.

As for the Facebook connection, normally these would all be echoed there.  But, the events over the weekend pre-empted things just a bit.

So, what do you think?  Do you agree with my assessment?  How about yourself?  What do the last 10 social media entries that you’ve made look like?  I like Alex’ challenge and hope that others followup.  

If you do, please tag me so that I can check you out.

The content of this blog is created by me at the keyboard or as a result of an aggregator of my daily reading under the title OTR Links. On Fridays, look for my signature post "This Week in Ontario Edublogs" where I try to share some great writing from Ontario Educators. The other regular post appears Sunday mornings as I try to start a conversation about things that have gone missing from our daily lives.

  1. Doug, I enjoyed reading your last 10 tweets and FB posts, and I initially planned to comment here about mine: certain about what would be true. Then I looked, and I was surprised. I almost eliminated some, thinking that they “don’t count.” It was this point that made me realize I may have a blog post after all.

  2. My last ten Tweets are mostly links to my own blog, promotion of the CSTA T-shirt campaign, and links to things written by other people. But that is now. Other times there is more conversation than anything. Specifically I like to take part in Twitter chats. Ten is a small sample set and only a snapshot. An interesting one but not one I’d like to use to evaluate how I use Twitter. On the other hand that is probably about what others use to judge who to follow. Humm.
