PostsOnlineStudents and others have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, feelings, activities, and even opinions about their teachers.

With the limit of 140 characters per Tweet, you have options to make those keystrokes build someone up — or break them down.

Just a thought, if someone was Tweeting about you, what would they say?

I believe that digital citizenship comes back to respect.  Respect for yourself and respect for others.

Every time you speak or post you should be aware of who will be hearing you or reading your comments.  Let’s face it, when you post online the world wide web is open to your digital trail – the good, the bad, and the ugly.

If you are speaking smack about teachers in your school today, what will your potential colleges think of you for the future?

Okay — so you think the Tweet was funny.  What is funny to one person, can be hurtful to another.

Just because someone is over 21 years old doesn’t mean they don’t have feelings.

Be respectful and mindful of your words – they matter.
