Twitter is the future... and international educators are not missing out! A perfect combination of subjectivity and objectivity, Twitter showcases the personality and emotion of a company, bridging the gap between a once disconnected business-consumer model. International educators recognize there is a population who are not just merely interested in knowing what's going on around the world, but are also wanting to take part in what's going on around the world.
