Twitter needs to be accessible at school

In recent years, Twitter has become a place of news, politics, education, and a form of communication.
At Shores, many teachers use Twitter as a way to communicate with students, and some even go as far as using a “follow” as extra credit points.

However, under the school wifi, Twitter is blocked, leaving students unable to use the app and/or website while on school grounds. Apps, such as Snapchat and Instagram, which serve the same purpose as Twitter, aren’t blocked at the school.

Many students have called for the unblocking of Twitter on the school wifi. Not only would it be beneficial for students being able to keep in touch with their teachers, but it would also give students a look into what is happening in the world, at that moment.

Twitter is much more than an app where students just mess around. It has grown into a place of living and learning. Even our President takes to Twitter for a lot of his statements.

With many teachers and administrators at Shores on Twitter, it only makes sense that it should be unblocked so students can stay up-to-date with things happening in the school community as well as being able to keep up-to-date with teachers.

Twitter is used as more of a learning experience than anything. In fact, it is one of the easiest places to stay up-to-date with news because of how fast and easy it is to get information.

There is no reason for Twitter to be blocked on our wifi. It is a learning and communication tool that Shores students should have access to on school grounds. We all hope the change can be made soon for both students and faculty.
