Every month I make a short list highlighting my choices of the best resources I shared through (and learned from) Twitter, but didn’t necessarily include them in posts here on my blog.
I’ve already shared in earlier posts this month several new resources I found on Twitter — and where I gave credit to those from whom I learned about them. Those are not included again in this post.
I’m posting December’s list a bit early — over the holidays I need to focus more on writing my third book, so will be spending less time on the Web for the next couple of weeks.
Here are my picks for December’s Best Tweets (not listed in any order):

Volcanoes: Dangerous Beauty, LIFE slideshow
