Want to use Twitter in your course but are concerned about privacy? Check out TweetKnot (http://tweetknot.com/). A Knot is a community of Twitter users who share a common interest. Every member of a community can send a message to all other members of the same community. All you need is a twitter account to join a Knot. Knots can be public or private. Private Knots require approval by the creator to join.
The creator can specify a Knot to follow any member of Twitter thus eliminating the need for each community member to follow someone individually . For example, I could create a “Climate Change” Knot for my climatology course and follow http://twitter.com/ClimateChangeUS and whenever there is a tweet from ClimateChangeUS it will be automatically posted to the Climate Change” Knot. For more ways to use TweetKnot see the “Help” page.
