This is a post-feedback, second edition of my MA dissertation for my course in Educational Technology and TESOL at the University of Manchester, in the UK.

It focuses on three case studies of English language teachers who use Twitter as a medium of connecting to an online community in order to engage in development and professional learning.

I used interview and participant journals to generate the data and my findings are based on this.

The research is highly reflexive, in that I refer regularly to ways in which the research could have been affected by me being the researcher.
