Exploring the Twitterverse | July 25th, 7:00pm
Twitter offers a very limited amount of characters with which to convey a message in tweet form. But it is surprising how much you can say in 140 characters. In this class, we'll discuss the hype around Twitter. We'll go through the jargon -- What does it mean to "follow" someone? What is a hashtag and how does that work? We'll explore various examples of how tweeting can range from the every day, to the more profound message. In some cases, tweets can break the latest news.
