MEDIA: Twitter Shuffles Education Rankings

Rb A highly incomplete look at the numbers last night (see below) shows that some of those who may be big on blogs or elsewhere aren't so big on Twitter, at least in terms of followers.

Others don't even seem have a Twitter feed at all.

Where do you rank?  Who'd I miss?  What else do you notice?

The unexpectedly low list includes Rotherham (214), Petrilli (231), and Joanne Jacobs (227).  But at least they're in the game. 

Other people -- Jay Mathews, Sam Dillon, Bill Turque, The Quick and the Ed, Charlie Barone -- don't seem to have a Twitter feed that I can find easily.

Last but not least, there are lots of folks -- hidden gems? -- who are much bigger on Twitter than they might seem to be in blogland, including Matthew Tabor (2806), DetentionSlip (2487), and Gary Stager (2242).  Not just ed tech people.  Maybe they're worth some attention.  Maybe they're just following a lot of people.  11671 Web: http://www.andycarvin.com
