EdTech Tool Uses:Visible Tweets is a visualisation tool for Twitter messages that you wish to display to a group of people. Simply enter a hashtag, username, etc. into the search engine and hit 'go'. The default setting chooses from a number of animation styles at random, or you can specify a fixed one if you prefer. Tweets will then be displayed on-screen with colourful design and animation. This is a particularly handy tool for showing a back channel at an event such as a conference, lecture, etc. - just connect to a data projector and display as appropriate.
