Tweeting: When it Matters

This will certainly be Donald Trump’s legacy: He elevated it to a level where it cannot be ignored. But all tweeting is not the same: Some tweets carry more impact than others.

Part of issue here is developing a method to study the impact.

Students should not just see the end product, but how you got there. – Joseph Cernik 4 years ago
