Teachers Who Tweet: 50 Educators You Should Follow

It’s no surprise that Twitter, inarguably one of the most popular social platforms, has more than tweens and “hip brands” (like us, of course!) tweeting tidbits into the universe. Teachers, professors, and other types of educators use this platform to bring academia into the 21st Century, share ideas, and intellectually influence their followers.

We’ve put together a list of the top tweetin’ educators on the basis of high Klout scores, content, and engagement. Whether they are discussing revolutionary edtech techniques, intersectional feminism, or race relations… we think they are awesome and you should too! Simply click on their names to follow them individually, or check out this handy Twitter list.

Anyone we should add? Let us know in the comments!
