Educators rush to get five-year-olds tweeting

News that the primary school curriculum could soon feature Twitter and Wikipedia has come as a shock to most, but not us. 

Computer Weekly’s journalists are fully versed in the world of Web 2.0, and cannot abide anyone who would suggest that Twitter is just the most irritating bit of Facebook, or that it will not fundamentally change the way the human race communicates, or, heaven forfend, that it is just a fad.

These sentiments make us very angry indeed, and we can only hope that children as young as five are taught to master the art of tweeting before it dies a death.
