Recently, Elon Musk brought Twitter for 44 million dollars, switching the company private. “Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Musk said in a press release.

With the holidays kicking off and winter break getting nearer, the “12 days of Twitter” challenge has started back up for the year.

“I adopted 12 Days of Twitter from other districts who are putting it out there, to engage other teachers, using social media; and connecting with one another, and talking about their year, and goals, and hopes, and dreams,” librarian Chelsea Hamilton said. “So it’s just a way for teachers to share what they’re doing in their classrooms and to get ideas from other teachers.”

Hamilton sees the challenge as a way to collaborate and share with teachers and faculty from around the district.

“I started it my 1st year and I got the idea from our DLC at the time, Ms. Hennebrie, she had the idea and we put all the graphics together and the district also does, or they did at one point, 12 days of Twitter for the entire district and I know some other campuses do it as well,” Hamilton said. “A lot of the times we use the same prompts and we share with one another, so it’s a good way for teachers across the district to talk to one another, within our campus with one another, and then usually a lot of times we get a lot of input from across the state or across the country.”
