Well maybe no more…I guess it depends on what you plan for your client strategy and implementation and your social media blitz. But you are done with your “official” Live Tweeting for the semester.
So now, provide a few observations you have about your own live-tweeting and the live-tweeting of your classmates. Who was the best Tweeter (other than you)? Why?
What do you wish you would have known before you started this process? What did you learn? What one piece of advice would you give to someone who was assigned to live Tweet and event?
Embed your best Tweet in your response and explain why it is your best.

This year’s News Engagement Day fair saw several classes coordinating to help students at Texas Wesleyan get more engaged with the news. What did you do for MCO 3399? Do you think your social media was effective? What did you learn, and how will that impact your projects for the rest of this semester?
Check out this News Engagement Day review of retweets nationally:
As our tagline says, our goal is to teach you how to create social media that doesn’t suck. That’s a big one, and we will work diligently this semester to fulfill that goal. Toward that end, you will need to read social media posts–the good, the bad and the ugly. Find things that work. Tear them apart, so you can find out why it does work. With that in mind, here’s your post for this week, due before midnight on Aug. 25:
- Go to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Find examples (2), of posts that are great and 2 posts that are horrible.
- What makes them so good and what makes them so bad?
- Make sure you read your classmates’ posts and tell us what you think of their examples.
Here’s a link to a blog post about How Not to Suck on Social Media to get you started with ways to improve your posts: http://youngadventuress.com/2014/07/social-media-travel.html
Let’s put on our training pants everyone, and see the post for September 10, 2013:
When you open a social media account, you oftentimes check the box that says you’ve read the terms of service, but you rarely read the terms of service.
Take a look at Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram. Post a link to the terms of service for each site. Were you surprised by what you read? Who holds the copyright to what you publish on each site?
When Catherine Cuellar visited our class, she gave you lots of ways to find her on social media. What did she say about the class after she left? What did you say to her after she left?
Take this opportunity to make contact with Catherine and our other visitors from this semester, Lara Zuehlke, Addy Meira and Richie Escovedo. Find them on social media and continue your relationship. Post your tweet to them here for all of us to see.
Thank you to all of our guests from this semester!
