What was I Going to Write About?

So I wake up this morning and Cate Gardner has declared herself a member of the Aaron Polson Fan Club.

Me: shocked. Humbled. Thrilled somebody reads my words let alone enjoys reading them.

Thanks, Cate.

I had something to write about...what was it...yeah:

Arwiculate: A word of the day game for Twitter.

Being a reluctant Twitter user and English teacher, I thought "Wow: something I can actually use in my classroom that makes use of one of the fastest growing online social networking tools?"

Check it out, see what you think. I'm off to craft some tweets with my first period class.

How can you not have a fan club (just wait until your students get hold of your writing) You will be the cool teacher who rips books apart in class to make a point- wait, I think that has already been done.

That is a pretty cool twitter tool. I hope they use it for good and not evil.

Cate Gardner said...

Don't give me twitter tools to play with, I'm on there enough as it is. :D

And hey, I'm not any old member of the club, I've declared myself president.

Aaron Polson said...

Jamie - Yeah...let's not let the school board see that one...

Cate - You can be the dictator for life.

K.C. Shaw said...

Ooh, a twitter game that involves words! I know what I'll be doing tonight.

I'm going to join your fan club before everyone else joins and it's not cool anymore. :)

Aaron Polson said...

K.C. - I'm not sure it would ever be cool. (but thanks)

Soon other writes will be dressing up as you for Halloween! : )

Aaron Polson said...

Natalie - all they need is a pair of khakis and some plaid. Sad but true.

katey said...

Haha it helps clever people look clever... I love it!

And yeah, I'm so in the fanclub. I wanna be an officer.

Aaron Polson said...

Jameson - Somebody's basement. That's all I know.

Katey - You can be a minister of propaganda. 'course, I don't have much say.
