Chapter, Q&A progress

Suggestions From Kathy:

  • Everyone: read Beth’s post about Twitter and its impact on two lives – from 2007
  • Everyone: read Paolo’s second draft
  • Please remember to spell-check and grammar-check your drafts
  • Provide sources for your claims; link to online sources but remember to provide “end notes” with your references (for printed version)
  • Background image critiques: remember that any “text” on the background can only be parsed by the human eye. Links won’t be clickable, search engines won’t “read” it either. Most important info is the “text” that is the Twitter profile. Secondary is the background image.
  • If you haven’t read this yet, recommended: my LinkedIn question/answers about Twitter use
