Several of you have gotten started on the Scavenger Hunt. Looks great! When you post photos, it’s best to use the built-in photo posting within Twitter itself, if possible, rather than 3rd-party options like Twitpic, Instagram, YFrog, etc.

Here’s why: One annoying feature of Twitter is that some tweets never show up in search. Tweets with links to outside sources sometimes doesn’t show up when you do a search, especially if they’re posted from new accounts. If your tweet links to a photo on a 3rd-party service, the tweet may not show up when someone searches for the #JRLWeb hashtag. (I’ll still be able to see it in my timeline, so it’s not a problem for me, but students at other schools may never see your tweet.)

Also, whenever you search for the #JRLWeb hashtag to see other schools’ tweets, make sure you select the option to see “All” tweets, rather than just the “Top” tweets.

Good luck, and let me know if there’s any questions.
