This is something that can occur in a classroom or a critical situation. The first time I received my exam tweets I found it very unusual. It came from my professor’s personal Twitter account.
Some professors, unfortunately, are using their personal accounts as part of a marketing strategy. They can use it to give away materials and collect their fee for the course.
I doubt this strategy was good enough to prepare me for the actual exam. I was a good candidate. But I can definitely say that the information I got from the exam tweet is very helpful.
I am aware that professors have their personal websites with their contact information, but now they can also tweet. They have to set up a system where they can set up one account for each of their courses. So they will tweet their exam results.
Unfortunately, some students cannot cope with this new system. Some find it extremely disturbing. They think it is only meant to drive people crazy.
Your classmates can also use Twitter to share their knowledge. You will never know if they have found that answer on their own. But if you are very clever you can use this opportunity to learn. Your fellow students are very friendly and ready to help.
Some universities allow students to pay a registration fee and receive their results online. My school does this. It’s nice to know that they will be very accessible if you need them.
Analyze the tweet carefully. Is it just a single text? Does it have quotes?
Look at the different details. Is there a picture included in the tweet?
Your classmates are eager to share their knowledge. If you ask a question, they might be happy to share their answer.
