Abstract:Twitter, the popular microblogging social network, is only one aspect of a broader phenomenon that has involved the development of the Web in the last years; new forms of communication and free or low cost sharing webtools have been growing rapidly, changing the face of the Internet. Among these innovative social webtools, Twitter has achieved a particular position because it gives the Internet users the opportunity of becoming protagonists on the Web with the publication of their own texts. In this same way, it can also improve classroom-teaching practice. The aim of this paper is to point out the achievements and the drawbacks of the use of Twitter as integration with traditional classroom teaching through the illustration of some practical examples and experiences whose aim is promoting communication, stimulating peer e-learning and giving more efficacy to teaching.
