I teach pre-service teachers at Fresno State and I encourage them to develop their PLN on Twitter. A few of them requested Tweeps to follow that are subject specific.
A Twitter Win
This list by itself is a Twitter win. I had filled in a few Twitter handles and set the Google Spreadsheet to anyone can edit. You will notice how the list has exploded, truly crowdsourced. Some folks added additional columns and someone made the header look spiffy.
Do you know educators who are a good follow on Twitter? Tweeps who share resources, tweet about education and are willing to help other educators. Add to the list. Go to http://goo.gl/pA6Pa1 and type in a Twitter handle.

For art, I also like @KidsCreateArt, @artgirl2, @art_cathyhunt, @peterhreynolds, @FresnoArts, @mrszickartchick, @greeneyegal, @ArtLadyHBK, @theartofed. For edtech, I like @julikimbley, @willkimbley,@jcorippo, @CoderDojo, @edutopia, @jordosh (gamifiction).
The list is set that anyone can edit, please feel free to add those names.
Might be good to add a Google+ area as well. It seems to me that Twitter growth has stagnated, certainly compared to Google+. The exchanges on G+ are much richer than those on Twitter, in my experience.
They are for different purposes. Certainly you can get more into a topic when you are not constrained to 140 characters. However, then people can post more than 140 characters…. You are exposed to less ideas when you have to sift through more words.
I added them to the list.
I changed the header from Schl Lib Media to Public and School Librarians, since the list has both and since AASL officially went back to School Librarians as the title.
