I'm just gonna say this: I find it interesting that the ppl who get listed the most rail against lists now. Those of us who are constantly left off lists (for whatever reason) are at once bewildered and grateful. On the one end, I'm not sure what I did to merit #2, but I also know that, in some circles, having only seven thousand followers does not make you a real blogger or worth being in the "circle." Most of the people I talk to don't work this way, but some do. I thank you for dropping my name in this post because, as the one person who people start to think of when they think of teachers of color who tweet, I see the bias far too often. Good on Mashable. I wonder if how many people rail against lists they actually get on.
I saw the list of Mashable's most influential teacher tweeters. This type of stuff will always bother me. On some level, I was happy to see Jose Vilson listed, because more people need to hear what he is saying. However, on a...

+John Spencer asked us if teachers should be political, and some things you may have missed about the MLK's part in the 1963 March on Washington, all in my reads of the week.

Here's why Wikileaks is wrong:

a) They're wrong.

b) She's a little girl. What's wrong with you!?

c) She's advocating for free compulsory education for all.

d) They can advocate for Manning without knocking Malala.

e) War hawks don't need an excuse to go after a country. A fake PowerPoint slide show are enough to engage in some form of combat. At this point, our country drones, provides weapons to, or occupies any country that is strategically in the way of the US government's interests.
