For Tuesday your primary homework is to use and become familiar with Twitter. (See below for some additional Twitter info, but post (tweet) at least 10 times over the weekend.) You should also read How Twittering Creates a Social Sixth Sense Clive Thompson, from Wired and Friends Swap Twitters and Frustration&Wall Street Journal. These are both short and should only take you 15 minutes to read.
Note that the syllabus lists readings about iJustine, you do not need to read these, as we will not cover them until Thursday.
I have as of 2:30 Thursday added 19?) of you to my following list, so if you are looking for classmates to follow you should go to my Twitter profile and add in some of your classmates. You don’t necessarily need to follow everyone in the class but add in at least ten to get the Twitter experience. You can also choose to follow people who are not in our class. There are several personalities on Twitter if you would like to follow them. Barack Obama or John Edwards for example, if you find others leave them in the comments.
Two other notes on Twitter. To make you Twitter experience better you should get a Twitter client for your computer or perhaps integrate it with your Facebook page. Finally, note that if you want to block people or make your tweets (posts) private Twitter enables this function.
