While doing research in class today about my topic of violence in sports, we used Twitter. I was interested in using this as a search device. I already had a twitter account and I love to use it during my daily life, usually when I have some extra time. I originally thought that it was a stupid idea, yet when I got an iPhone I decided to try using the Twitter app on the phone. Turns out that I enjoy using Twitter as a network option. Back to today, I had never used Twitter for research so I was very intrigued to see how effective it was.
