0.2. Twittering a Tiny Story

Twitter Talk

Most likely, Twitter is the social network to which more teachers belong and with wider professional interactions. You may already have a Twitter account, but just in case you don't, please follow the steps below:

  1. Create an account (Choose your nick carefully).
  2. Add a profile picture (i.e. a personal photo).
  3. Write a brief bio including the details of your choice.
  4. Show your personal website or blog.

If you already have a Twitter account, please check that you have followed all the steps above. Finally, update your course profile adding your brand new Twitter username if you feel like it.

Can you tell a tiny story?

Well, that is our warm-up proposal to get you into digital storytelling. It should be a great exercise and a lot of fun. It is aimed at triggering off your creative juices and helping you to focus rigorously on word choice, sentence structure, and even punctuation.

Ready to play?

Write a tiny story that allows the reader's imagination to run with it.

You should start your Tweet using #tinystory_INTEF, that is the only condition.

Then, submit a link to your Tweet. That's very easy: when you write a tweet, you see something like this:

Linked Tweet

Just click on the time indicator that is on the top right hand side of your Tweet and you will see the Tweet URL, i.e. https://twitter.com/mjgsm/status/382948633693286400 Copy the URL, paste it and submit it.

After all your #tinystory_INTEF tweets are due, they will be collected into a public Storify strip.

The instructor will verify that you have accomplished this task successfully.
