This weekend I noticed a new site called http://buzzable.com in the news and set up a group for Higher Ed at http://www.buzzable.com/highered.
How does it work? First, you login at the top using your Twitter login credentials. Buzzable says your password is encrypted and will never be shared!
Then, go to http://www.buzzable.com/highered and join the group. When you post a question here, it also posts it to your twitter account with a link to the Buzzable group. Any responses that are made to your question from the Buzzable group are threaded as a conversation, making it extremely easy to keep track of everything being said. You’ll likely even find new people to follow out of the 40+ who have already joined the group!
To keep track of everything being said in the Buzzable group without having to login, you can also follow @higheredbuzz, where all tweets are being aggregated. But responding to @higheredbuzz or just responding in general won’t add your comment to the thread; you have to go through Buzzable to do that.
