So how do you stay in the loop on all the new things Google is rolling out? In this article we will take a look at Twitter, one way to get a steady feed of the latest and greatest in Google news (a following article will cover a second source of information).
Option 1 - Twitter
Twitter is a great source of information. ideas, and links on just about any topic, including Google. Over time I have found quite a few Google-related Twitter accounts that are useful to follow.
TweetDeck app for Chrome, I can view all the Google tweets in one convenient column.
As for who I follow...
Most all of the Google services have their own Twitter account to share any news or developments related to that service. Any time a new feature is released, these Twitter accounts are usually the first to announce it.
Additionally there are several employees at Google that make good use of Twitter to share helpful reminders, announce new information, and highlight other posts of interest to educators.
Finally, there are quite a few blogs that cover Google news and rumors. Many of these blogs have corresponding Twitter accounts, which can be a great source of rumors, sneak peeks, breaking news, and opinion.
And of course, you can always follow the Twitter account for our Apps User Group (http://twitter.com/appsusergroup) as I use it to highlight the most relevant tweets from all of the above accounts, as well as news from our site.
Have you found other Twitter accounts that are good sources of Google news, tips, and information? If so, add your suggestions to the comments below.
