Psst...Hey, have you heard of Twitter. Chances are, if you have a high schooler living in your house, at least they have. Twitter is a free social utility that is all based on a simple interface asking users to answer the question, "What are you doing?"
Mansfield ISD now has a Twitter account. If you already have a Twitter account or are just curious, you can follow our account here. We plan to offer comments here on what is going on within Mansfield ISD, and is also a great "real-time" source to find out about weather closings, breaking news, etc.
If you're still not sure about all this, watch this great video about Twitter. Many families are also using it to stay in touch with each other amidst their busy lives. Enjoy.
Side note: The Common Craft site also has some great videos about other new media, or Web 2.0, apps like online photo sharing, Facebook, etc. As always, their site is an outside Web site and we do not take credit for any of their content.
