How do people best maintain all the resources that are sent on Twitter. There are so many good resources, how do people keep track of them all? Admittedly not all engage me but there is a lot that do and I am finding that I get web link overload. Would be happy to have some ideas from others. If you miss something on twitter, can you recover it if you missed a day or 2?

Also, what tools do people use to keep track of people blogs?

I also tweet a lot and get a bit overwhelmed by the amount of new information I gather. I restrict myself to save only what I see I can use in the classroom. I teach French, Spanish and English 3AP. I made a list of new tools and only keep what works for me. I try to put all interesting articles on delicious.
For archiving, your best option is a bookmarking service like Delicious or Diigo. They both allow you to assign multiple tags to the resources.

If you are looking for a way to view discussions more efficiently, you can try installing the widget I just made to your website (you can view a demo of the widget on the home page of this site). Its available here: http://www.guidetoonlineschools.com/online-teaching/widgets.

Hey, I know this is supposed to be about twitter but you mentioned how people keep track of blogs.

 

Are you using gmail? One of googles apps is called Google Reader. This is an incredible tool for keeping track of blogs and news sites. To start sign up for gmail and along the top toolbar you will see "calendar", "documents", "photos", "reader" - bingo. 

 

At the top of the right menu bar click add a subscription. You can enter the URL, the name of the website (ex. The Economist), or blog. Continue adding a few so you can see them all listed along the right side. 

 

From now on, you can go into your Google Reader and browse the headlines and stories from all your favorite websites from one place. If you want to go to the actual website just click on the little arrows beside the title. As you 

 

Some of my favorite things to do with this is to categorize my feeds (each blog or site you add is called a feed) by subject. I have business, tech, education etc. so I can easily pick what I feel like browsing. You can also "star" items you really like and might want to go back to later. 

 

You can try adding my blog feed if your interested in it ;) www.learnade.com/blog

How to Choose Curriculum Writing and Design Service

Writing and carrying out the design of a CV is a challenge that we all, once, have faced with greater or lesser success, but as your career evolves, curriculum development becomes more complex and requires a higher level of professionalization to express the differential value against the competition, the CV requires a much more strategic, differentiating, detailed and objective oriented design and writing. That is why many professionals, aware of the importance of transmitting the impeccable…See More
