Has Twitter finally landed on cloud Cuckoo!

Surely not... but it’s true; a top London university has added a new degree to it’s existing offerings, a “Twitter degree”!

"It's not another Mickey Mouse course," insists tutor Jon Hickman, of Birmingham City University. So does this actually identify how education is moving with the times and is ahead of the game understanding how social media is actually a respectable form of further education and occupational development, along side professions such as doctors, lawyers, and solicitors?

Has social media become less of just a social medium and actually developed into a professional skill? There are many thoughts and opinions on this, all that can be said is with this being mentioned and talked about all over Facebook, Twitter and blogs world wide – is a degree necessary if everyone can do it already!
