Playschool models Twitter for Pre-Schoolers. Appropriate, or not?

Is Pre School too young for Twitter?

The Sydney Daily Telegraph has this article about Playschool playing with social media and twitter.

Are pre-schoolers too young for this?  Or is Playschool only modelling what is now normal for pre-schoolers?

I have heard of pre school children with their own I-Pads and in two minds about their value for young children.  I suppose it depends on what sort of apps they’re using, how much time they spend on the screens, and whether this screen time is crowding out flexible, imaginative play…..

But – Twitter?  Is this too much??

Your thoughts on this changing world?
