It might surprise you, but next month Twitter turns 6, and if web years are anything like dog years that’s a pretty long time. Here at Higher Ed Live we thought it was high time to reflect back on the role the microblogging site has played in higher education. To tackle that topic we tapped Emerson College Professor David Gerzof Richard and Mike Petroff, web and enrollment technology manager at Emerson.

From the coolest class project you’ve ever heard of, to strategies for integrating Twitter into enrollment efforts, we look at Twitter’s role inside the classroom and out, and even delve into the always fun topic of Twitter for professional development.

How is your college or university using Twitter? Has it changed through the years? Leave a comment below – or better yet – Tweet us.
