Abstract
This paper is a report on the findings of a study conducted on the use of microblogging (Twitter) in a teacher preparation program at large urban university in the southwest United States. A questionnaire asked undergraduate and graduate students to rate the use of microblogging as part of their asynchronous discussions outside of their regularly scheduled class sessions. Findings indicate a positive attitude and feeling of connectedness toward the use of microblogging for both undergraduate and graduate students. Additional analysis indicated that graduate students tended to rate the technology higher than undergraduates.
