(NOTE: We can discuss this assignment when you get to it. Please also try to get it done by the second full week of October.)
You’ve read Jay Newton-Small’s “Congress’s New Love Affair with Twitter”and Dana Milbank’s “Politicians twitter throughout address to Congress like bored schoolchildren” (as well as several other articles on Twitter), played on Twitter for at least the past few weeks, sat in several classes in which Twitter was mentioned far too often, and been forced to follow and be followed by those people from class outside the class room. Including the teacher!
(psst… here is another article: http://www.theatlantic.com/doc/201001/short-writing)
So… What do you think?
About Twitter? About interconnectivity? About sharing of inane details of one’s life? About its utility? As a marketing tool? As alternative media? As an emergency communications tool? As a teaching tool? As a fad?
Make it interesting to read. Link to stuff. Pictures? Sure, embed ‘em. Have fun.
Title it whatever you want.
Tag it: “Twonderin’ about Twitter and Tweets” (without the quotes)
Due: Noon (Sharp!), Friday, February 19, 2010.
Sometime over the weekend, go back and read the post by the person listed to the right of your name below and be prepared to discuss it in class the following Monday (February 22nd).
