Twitter - Great Tool for Learning

Twitter - Great Tool for Learning Photography by Dakota Visions Photography LLC www.dakotavisions.com
We would like to get in the habit of sharing with you great articles, tweets, posts, or likes we've seen during the week.  We may try and do these on Monday, and call it - Social Media Monday or just whenever we feel like it.  Maybe we start Facebook Friday or Twitter Tuesday...haven't quite figured out how to fit in Pinterest or Google+ yet! 

The point is, we want to share some of the items we've found on social media all in one space, so you can easily enjoy them as well.
