Backchatter - Were Your Top Words Used in Tweets This Morning?

As most of my readers know, I LOVE twitter! I love integrating the website in my classroom, communicating with former students/colleagues, and gaining new information and I interact with faculty/staff from other universities. However, I always look for new and innovative ways to increase student engagement through this particular communication media.

Backchatter, a game about Twitter trendspotting, was a recent topic on Jane Knight's blog Social Media in Learning. Here is her post - Backchatter enables users to select words they think people include in their daily tweets. If these words emerge in the day's tweets, then the users gain points!

This website is usually integrated with attendees at conferences, BUT it seems the developers are working on expanding their audience.

Have you HEARD OF or TRIED Backchatter?
