Read & Respond week 5: Microblogging and Twitter

February 2, 2017

This week is about all things Twitter, so Briggs’ chapter on microblogging fits nicely with a platform where you’re limited to 140 characters or less. You’re probably familiar with microblogging but may never have heard the term. Many of you have been doing it for years – did you know?

Twitter’s the most widely known venue for microblogging, so poke around in some of these links:

Finally – don’t skip this step! – you need to get ON Twitter. You’ve got three things to do:

  • Create an account if you don’t have one (or want to use a different one for class), and make sure it is public (not hidden).
  • Follow me (@thebobthe) so I can follow you back.
  • Tweet something useful to our class to our course hashtag #WVUblogJ

As always, post your response as a comment to this post (and finish your Twitter duties) by 11:59 p.m. Sunday, February 5.
