Every month I make a short list highlighting my choices of the best resources I shared through 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.
If you don’t use Twitter, you can also check-out all of my “tweets” on my Twitter profile page or subscribe to their RSS feed.
Here are my picks for June’s Best Tweets (not listed in any order):
“School is No Place for Heroes, Says One Scholar” is a good article poking holes in the myth that one person can do it all.
12 Of The Most Iconic Photographs Ever Taken include some pretty tragic ones. Thanks to John Mikulski for the tip.
The World’s 10 Most Unique Islands has some pretty good images. Thanks to Annie Cook for the tip.

Thank you for continuing to list the best tweets. I sometimes miss some of the links with the different time zones and these were some of the best links. I found the photograph links the most moving and could see them as ways of starting discussions in the classroom.
This is fantastic idea for a post. It definitely makes me feel I have contribute to the social network community.
