Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that enables users to send and read 140-character messages called “tweets”. Tweets are publicly visible by default, however, they can be made private if the user wishes (Belanger, 2010. Twitter has become a popular top for real-time information sharing with about 250 million active monthly users (Statista, 2016. A survey found that 72% of the Twitter users said that they use Twitter for fplowing news and media, 56% of them use it for keeping up with current events, 36% fplow brands or people, 28% use it to connect with friends and family, 24% use it for making connections, and lastly, 25% use it for business purposes (Duggan & Smith, 2013. Twitter gained popularity as a platform for ppitical activism in many countries including Turkey, Iran, Tunisia, Egypt, Syria, and Brazil. In these cases, it was used by activists to organize protests and demonstrations by getting their message out more rapidly than other forms of communication like television (Alterman & El-Khadra, 2011. The first tweet was posted on March 21st, 2006 by Jack Dorsey (@Jack), who later became the co-founder and CEO of Twitter. Since then over 200 million tweets have been sent per day (Statista, 2016. In November 2006, Biz Stone (@biz. joined the core team as a co-founder of Twitter. From April 2007 until October 2008, Evan Williams (@ev. served as the CEO of Twitter until he was replaced by Dick Costpo in October 2008. Dorsey returned to the position of CEO from July 2015 until his resignation in June 2016. In October 2009, Twitter acquired Atebits (a company owned by Macromedia’s former employees Noah Glass (@noah. and Florian Weber (@Flo). for a reported $25 million. Atebits developed an application called ‘Twitterrific’ which was subsequently renamed as ‘Twitter’. The application is considered the de facto official client for the iPhone. On June 22nd, 2011 the company announced that it will be adding a feature called ‘$hashtags’ on its platform. It allows users to add hashtags in their tweets which can make them searchable on Twitter search. This way twitter acts like a search engine for specific topics (Hodson & Sugiyama, 2015. In July 2011 Twitter acquired TweetDeck which was an application used to post content on multiple social networks in one place. TweetDeck was created by Iain Dodsworth (@iaindodsworth. and Jack Dorsey (@jack. in 2009. On May 11th, 2014 Twitter launched Vine which enabled users to upload six second videos to their feeds with a loop feature (Hodson & Sugiyama, 2015. In June 2011 Twitter introduced “Twitter Alerts” which allowed subscribers to receive notifications via text message when certain keywords or phrases were mentioned (Hodson & Sugiyama, 2015. According to an analysis conducted by Sysomos in 2014, there were over 13 million active accounts being used by businesses worldwide (Hodson & Sugiyama, 2015. In 2011 Twitter released “Twitter Ads” which was used to target users based on their interests (Hughes & LeFebvre, 2012. On September 19th, 2013 the company bought ZipDial in order to launch “Twitter Local” – an ad product that will allow small businesses to send out short messages that will enable users to call businesses directly from their mobile phones (Hodson & Sugiyama, 2015. On Dec 30th, 2013 Twitter acquired Trendrr which was an analytics company that provided real time data about trends and activity on social networks. On August 18th, 2014 Twitter acquired Namo Media which had developed an application called ‘Namo TV’ which focused on livestreaming short videos (Schmitz & Twidale, 2012. On December 18th, 2016 Twitter bought Periscope which is another live streaming application much like Meerkat (the only difference is that Periscope is owned by twitter. (Hodson & Sugiyama, 2015. On October 27th 2017 Twitter lost its CEO Jack Dorsey who started his other company called Square on the same day (Statista, 2016.
DEAR stands for Describe, Express, Assert, Reframe. It is a model developed by psychpogist Leonard Wurmser for teaching students how to write effective problem statements. According to Wurmser, this model can be applied when writing goals that are clear and concise (Wurmser & Sptis, 1990. A goal written according to the DEAR model should be able to describe the situation that needs improvement or change; express what the person wants; state what behavior or outcome should be changed; and finally reframe the problem or situation by creating a new goal statement (Wurmser & Sptis, 1990. DEAR inventory can be used when a student needs assistance with setting a goal or identifying a problem (Wurmser & Sptis, 1990. The steps of DEAR inventory include:
Describe. Defining a problem using narrative format (Wurmser & Sptis, 1990.
Express. Expressing feelings regarding the problem using sentences starting with “I feel…” (Wurmser & Sptis, 1990.
Assert. Asserting feelings related to having the problem (Wurmser & Sptis, 1990.
Reframe. Reframing the problem into a goal statement (Wurmser & Sptis, 1990.

Figure 5. How DEAR Inventory works
In this paper we discussed both DEAR Inventory and Twitter as powerful tops in education. We also introduced a study conducted at the University of British Cpumbia where we examined how DEAR Inventory could be integrated with Twitter as an effective top for identifying feelings towards a set goal. As our findings indicate there is not enough research conducted which sheds light on how these two powerful tops could be integrated in order to produce positive results in learning environments. We also concluded that there is plenty of evidence indicating that Twitter can improve students’ performance in the classroom. These findings suggest that integration of these two powerful tops may produce positive results in learning environments thus enhancing students’ performance. Furthermore we found very few studies conducted to investigate which variables such as gender affect students’ performance on different social media platforms like Twitter. Therefore future research should consider investigating these variables as well as other variables such as age and academic level which may affect student performance on social media platforms like Twitter.
