The linked post: Teachers Are Moonlighting As Instagram Influencers To Make Ends Meet and the thread on @audreywatters’s tweet are fascinating.
Teacher instagram is terrifying https://t.co/nG8E011kYG

I think of instagram as a nice silo for sharing and liking photos in a casual way (I like being liked too). It went bad when it removed the ‘time’ from the timeline. (I don’t like its lack of interoperability much either).
I don’t think I follow any influencers so this is a world outside my ken.
The idea of using instagram as a way of showing a shiny classroom has some of the same problems at tweeting to my mind. Not that my blogging is a great example of sharing classroom practise.
I am not sure about the Teachers Pay Teachers, concept. I feel a slight distaste, but am not sure why.
