The Japan Association for Language Teaching promotes good teaching and professional development for language educators around Japan and internationally. The group is composed on the national organization, Special Interest Groups (SIGs), local Chapters, and committees and projects such as publishing JALT Journal, The Language Teacher, and Conference Proceedings. Many Twitter users have set up accounts for various parts of the organization. I cannot vouch for the official nature of some of these accounts, but most of them seem legitimate. I have copied the profile information as-is.
Of course, some of them tweeted just a few times and are now dormant, but please follow any of these that you feel are useful, or maybe just add them to a list. Following the hashtag #JALT will also bring you all kinds of other (possibly related) messages.
If you have an account related to JALT that I missed, please contact me or just comment below.
