Twitter has certain characteristics that, if utilized appropriately, can make it a fantastic learning tool for English Language students. In this presentation, I will show some ways I have used Twitter with my learners in and out of class and how it enabled them to develop their linguistic performance. I will also show how teachers can adapt these activities for their own teaching context. Participants with no or little experience with Twitter are welcome to attend.
