Laurillard (2002) Conversational framework categorises blog entries under educational Technology. But I would suggest tweeting is a version of blogging. Although more informal, it is non the less a communication tool which enables users to complete a message loop (Yacci, 2000).
Tweeters are also able to build communities based on personal interest.
