Briggs Chapter 4

February 14, 2012 | Leave a Comment

The 21st century has seen alot of technological growth. The cell phone took strides and has been the foundation for quite a few platforms. 

I can remember when texting first hit the scene and you had to do your best to say what you need in 140 characters or less.

Social media saw the power of the text.

Mircroblogging is a concept that news outlets and journalists used through a social network platform known as Twitter. Twitter only allows you to use 140 characters, but you are able to send links, videos, and photos as well. It’s an easy way to say, “Hey read this!”

It’s important that a journalist tweet something catchy so you actually follow them one, two read their tweets, and three click their links. It’s simple.

Twitter took the 140 characters that we use to text and manipulate into a source for news, media, and personal well being. Well Done.
