Students have been learning to use the hashtag #tweetingwithachild to tweet pictures of their favourite childhood TV shows, while their teachers are also using it to discuss a range of subjects.
The new #tweetswithadaughter campaign started in the US and Australia this month and has since been rolled out in the UK, Canada, France, Australia, New Zealand and several other countries.
In the US, the hashtag has been used by the president’s daughters, Ivanka and Tiffany Trump, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner.
A tweet is made up of three words that are added together to form a word or phrase.
Some tweets are created by Twitter, others by the creators themselves and others are by the users of social media platforms.
It is not clear how many people have used the hashtag with a child, but the BBC has seen tweets from US students of Ivanka Trump, Tiffany Trump and Jared Kushner, and other US users of the hashtag.
“The hashtag #TWEETINGWITHACHILD is a great way for young people to learn about the world,” the White House said.
Teachers can also use the social media platform to discuss subjects including education, the economy, politics, climate change and health.
This is a new way of communicating #tweenage with kids, says @NatalieMCCAIN.

There is no word in the White Book of the American President on using the #tweed hashtag, but President Donald Trump said he used it himself when he was young.
He tweeted: “I used to say, ‘Hey, I got my Twitter, I’m tweeting with a girl.'”
