The first Twitter prototype, developed by Dorsey and contractor Florian Weber, was used as an internal service for Odeo employees[20] and the full version was introduced publicly on July 15, 2006.[8] With Twitter, it wasn't clear what it was.

Download the position paper The Australian Curriculum as presented by ACARA, acknowledges the importance of ICT as both a general capability (GC) and as a learning area in partnership with Design and Technology (the ‘Technologies’).
