A two part class that will take a look into various ways you can use Twitter. While some folks like to use it as a news feed, there are opportunities to network, find jobs, and even discuss beer brewing tactics from people around the world. The courses will be placed on YouTube, so please ask questions prior and when I post the content. If there are enough questions after the second session, I may create a third one to answer them.
- Session 1
Introduction to Twitter
- Session 2
Communication theory as it applies to Twitter
Have a computer or phone with access to Twitter. Be able to access YouTube videos.
Session 1: An introduction to Twitter. Understanding the language, and social norms people expect from you.
Session 2: The second session will be more about communication theory, more specifically a type of computer mediated communication theory (CMC). Though you may have 140 character limit, you don't want to use all of them, and there are ways to include yourself into public conversations. If you like meeting people throughout the world, discussing your favorite hobby, or even networking, this could be beneficial to you.
Have questions? Ask me on Twitter! @thejournalizer. If you are having trouble figuring out how to ask, feel free to do it on reddit.
I will post the classes to the ureddit subreddit, but you can also add my blog to your RSS feed and be alerted to it. www.play-this.org/feed
