Four years ago, in another somewhat futile attempt to reduce the backlog of resources I want to share, I began this occasional “Ed Tech Digest” post where I share three or four links I think are particularly useful and related to…ed tech.

Late last year, Twitter began testing a “bookmark” feature where you could save tweets you wanted to read later (instead of having to “like” them with the heart icon). It became available on my Twitter Mobile app last night and seems useful. I’m not sure, though, how widely available it has become. I’m adding this info to The Best Resources For Beginning To Learn What Twitter Is All About.
