Thanks for the welcome Mrs. James. I am from Northern Alberta Canada. I will be sure to check out your blog site as I get into the second semester of the year where I will be teaching Religion 25 to approximately 20 students. Have a Merry Christmas!

HI Dana and Karla- Welcome and thanks for joining! I have never heard of a Twitter account being suspended due a hashtag or amount ...
...of activity. Was it new? start a new one? #reteachers or #religionteachers but not used much and tweets disappear after a while. #ceolearn a good one we use in Sydney. You may find useful stuff there. Also here is my blog where I am trying to build up more resources:  You will see a page for Religious Education.  Will start posting more up :) Hope you guys are well. Where are you? What grades do you teach? My twitter handle is @7mrsjames Cheers JJ

I'll let you know Dan, I am still suspended and haven't heard anything back yet. It probably wasn't the hashtag itself but perhaps the amount of activity I did in trying to garner some interest. Imagine my feeling of guilt! Guess I was too excited about the possibilities and tried too hard.

I have a Twitter account @dang38 but I do not understand why creating a hashtag is something that would get them to suspend your account. Is it a glitch? The reason I ask is that hashtags to my understanding are open for all to utilize as they wish. I will wait to see what happens with your situation, perhaps, before beginning my own.

Guess I was too aggressive in trying to start the Catholic Educators hashtags. Twitter has suspended my account. Waiting to hear back from them (says it could take them 3-4 days)Guess I need to tweet more personal items even though I live through my work!

Are the four of you on Twitter?

Starting #caedchat and #caprincipals I used the link from the Jerusalem pics to start! Thanks Mrs. James:)
