Twitter experience

The purpose of this assignment is to introduce Twitter, and to give you additional practice writing a short document.

Set up a Twitter account if you do not already have one. Subscribe to follow (receive) my posts on the class Twitter stream:

Look through my past posts, and pick one that sounds interesting. Follow the link or links to learn more.

Write a short description of my tweet and state where it fits in our class outline.

Form a team with two or three others in the class and subscribe to each other's Twitter streams. Post a few tweets and see if your partner receives them.

Play around with Twitter until you and your partners are easy with the way it works.

Print out the description you wrote of one of my tweets as well as the test tweets you received from your partners and turn those in.
