Practical things: a wall in the staff room dedicated to social media provocations? A blog used as a discussion starter at a staff meeting?

More often matching specific texts to specific people. Push back from others- -only validates why T β€œstepped out” in the 1st place

So, perhaps there is a roll/role for a new type of school-level leadership here. Are school leaders making room for this type of learning?

No, I don't think so. Many school and district leaders use Twitter and social media as cheerleading, little critical thought

And so do many educators. Lot's of educators on twitter to promote their brand and further there career. There isn't one edutwitter.

I wrote this about how the kind of twitter you are discussing is becoming less & less of a thing and I stand by it.

Just yesterday someone I interact with in a private forum told me that their VP admitted she regularly checks on what teachers tweet

Is she checking to keep them in line or to learn from them?

To keep them in line. To make sure they don't tweet anything inappropriate or that would hurt the school or board.

A mutual friend of ours was called to meet an SO because she criticized board policy that was harming her child. Told to take tweet down.

I have been in that situation several times. Received angry phone calls from supers. Making the (yawn) board look bad.

No one censors the censor, they are 'above the law' at least they act this way.

That's the standard. Something that makes the school or the board look bad or is contrary to board policy.

Yes, that is why it is so difficult for a school board to improve in meaningful ways.
