Unlike What is believed by some scholars and language teachers, microblogging can be used in the following ways. Though its limitations should be taken into accountApplications:collaborative exchange of language for higher level learners

learning informal and colloquial language

using language synchronously in real-life situation

listening comprehension (podcasts)

Limitations:not suitable for lower proficiency level learnersDeemphasizing accuracy

It was easy, wasnt it?
