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. Now and then, in order to make it a bit easier for me, I may try to break it up into mid-month and end-of-month lists (and sometimes I’m a bit late).
I’ve already shared in earlier posts 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 Twitter profile page or subscribe to their RSS feed.
Here are my picks for August’s Best Tweets (not listed in any order):
“The Haimish Line” by David Brooks, NY Times
“Animated Sheet Music” makes music make sense (and looks cool while doing so) video
“The Nation’s Cruelest Immigration Law” NY Times
