I’m not quite sure how it all got started, but all of a sudden on Twitter tonight tons of people started sending tweets to Diane Ravitch starting “Poverty matters when…” And these were some amazing tweets.

I used “Searchtastic” to bring them all together. You can find all of them at the time of this post here. I think you can just type in the phrase to refresh it again, but I’m not sure.

I’ve also downloaded them all in a permanent document you can access here.

I also used Twitter’s own search, but I just don’t how long their search result page will stay “live.”

If you have other suggestions of tools to use to collect these tweets, I’m all ears. I tried Twitter Fountain and Tweet Doc, but they didn’t work well at all.

Feel free to add additional “Poverty matters when…” ideas in the comments section of this post.
