Easy Tweets is a cool website that I have found out lately. The website finds interesting and real tweets at your language level easy, medium, or difficult. It uses the word lists from Cambridge University’s English Vocabulary Profile project which lists more than 15,000 of the most common English words, ranked by difficulty level.

Go to the website, choose easy/medium or difficult, then write the keyword that you would like to find tweets about, then you can enjoy reading the tweets. If you think that a tweet is inappropriate, click on the flag and it will be deleted forever.

This tool can be used with upper levels and that’s great for teachers if you are looking for and using authentic materials in your classes.
