I wanted the children to have more control over their blog. Although they are K-Perfect I was not sure I wanted them in the site management area! I noticed all our iPad drawing programmes upload to Twitter.  So does Blocks the computer animated design Lego app. Thanks to lots of brain work from Elif Raskin, Kim Cofino and I, we added a Twitter feed to our blog.
