Twitter Bios

Goals and agenda for today:

  • Practice concise writing in preparation for the college essay
1. Michael opening moment

2. View The New York Times article "Twitter Bios and What they Really Say". Review the characteristics of a good twitter bio.

3. Write your own 160 character bio, paying special attention to word choice. Keep in mind that making strong word choices is often better than just using the fewest number of words, so choose carefully.

4. Email me your bio- I will be reading these aloud and you will be guessing whose bio is whose.

HW: Profile Revisions and Talk-Back due next class.
