Twitpic can be used internationally in many different ways. Through the use of this web2.0 application businesses, schools, churches, and even family or friends can communicate visually. They can all post pictures even if they are continents apart.

First of all, businesses can use this application very easily for their benefit. Lets say a business man working for a large company had to go over seas for a conference.While over there, he was told he must report at least once a day to make sure things are going smoothly. This man would be able to create a Twitter account and then be able to take pictures of his daily events with his cell phone, he could then immediately send them to Twitpic, when Twitpic receives the picture it is then uploaded directly on to the Twitpic web site. The boss could then place comments on the pictures and tell the man over seas what he thought of the progress being made. This is just one of the ways Twitpic can be used internationally in business. Now that you know how Twitter can be used in business internationally, I will tell you how it can be used internationally in education.

There is an endless amount of ways to use Twitpic internationally when it comes to education. If a teacher wanted to do pin pals, this program would be a way to enhance the learning experience. This is because not only could you pin pal with locals, but students would be able to send pictures and talk to students internationally. A teacher could reconcile with another teacher from overseas and then both teachers could have their students interact on this wonderful web2.0 application. The students would be able to send each other pictures and comment back and fourth on them. This would be a wonderful way for students to learn about other cultures. Probably the best way to use this application in education would be in foreign language classes. Sure students are supposed to learn the language, but they also need to learn about the culture of the country they are studying. The students would be able to learn so much about the language they are studying through the pictures and comments they send and receive. Students would love Twitpic. Not only can Twitpic be used in education internationally, but it can also be used in churches.

 Churches have plenty of reasons to investigate this web application. If a small group is thinking about going to Africa to help some missionaries, the missionaries could post all of their pictures of Africa up on twitpic. The missionaries would have chance to impact the small group with pictures, and convince them to come to help out. The small group members could then post comments and ask them any questions that they are wondering about. There are many reasons to use Twitpic internationally when it comes to church organizations, but there are also many reasons to have an account on Twitpic for family and friends.

It is obvious that Twitpic was created for family and friends. If a family member or friend that lives far away wants to share pictures and stories with you, all he or she would have to do is create an account on this application. They would be able to use Twitpic to share fond memories from over seas. If a friend went on vacation he or she could post all of their fond memories that they want to share.    

  Overall, Twitpic is a wonderful web2.0 application for friends and family, but with a little bit of effort Twitter could be used in many different countries for many different reasons. Twitter is a great way for students and teachers to share what they experience to the world through pictures.

  2. Since twitpic is on the internet, anyone all over the world can use Twitpic as long as they have tech device such as computers, mobile phones or else. This is not only for someone in the States, but for people on the web.

    With this flatform, we can share our cultures internationally with global friends. For example, these days, I can see many photos about Halloween on Twitpic site. From this, I can guess lots of people in the states or other sites are having Halloween party and having fun with that festival. So, I can learn about Halloween atmosphere in the States by sharing photos on Twitpic. 

     Like this, I assume that we can exchange our cultures and hot issues in each country by sharing pics on Twitpic internationally.

    p.s pls kindly let me know if I misunderstood on this... (tongue)
