Abstract There is a growing interest in Personal Learning Networks (PLN) and Twitter among educators. In this phenomenological research study, seven educators were interviewed about their experiences using Twitter within a PLN to try to understand if Twitter played a unique and specific role within their PLN. While a PLN does not require Twitter, this research shows that Twitter does play a significant role in the PLN, and that there are unique characteristics of Twitter which makes it a powerful platform to connect and collaborate with a PLN.
