Share What You’re Doing
I love seeing pictures of people’s classrooms and what kids are doing. Please tweet those! Your phone has a camera, super easy to add a picture to your tweet from mobile.
Use a Google Drawing
I heard that tweets get 30% more engagement when they include a picture. What I’ve started doing is leaving a Google Drawing open in a tab. I change the background color and drag a Bitmoji from my Chrome extension to the drawing.
Right click on the Google Drawing to change the background color.
Bitmoji Chrome Extension
You can create an avatar of yourself (let a student make it for you, ha!) using Bitmoji. There is also a phone app and the phone app has better clothing choices. But you also want the CHROME Bitmoji extension. It’s an easy way to add a fun graphic.
Drag Into a Composed Tweet
And just because I like a good keyboard shortcut, try using Control Enter (Command Enter on a Mac) to send that tweet off!
