Every Summer, there’s this energy on Twitter where math and maths teachers are energized and ready to discuss math problems and puzzles, do Twitter chats on a week night(!), and grow professionally through spirited debate on how to best teach students.

**What I’ve assembled together are magnificent people to follow now and to put in a Twitter Summer reading list, so that once the school year is over you can double-dose on some amazing tweets and threads.**

If you are looking for conversations that are longer than 288 character responses, you can certainly try out the UNLIMITED CHARACTER mathematics conversations on this website Cake.co. Here are recent conversations on Cake about **mathematics**, **problem solving** and **general education**.
