Assignment: Inaugural Redress: Jive Tweeting

Twitter. Gotta luv it! We’re back to the telegraph. Stop!

The first assignment and class session of our course in Fake News takes us into the President-Elect’s favorite realm: the Twittsterverse! Help us Fake Live Tweet (Jive Tweet) this historic event!

Fake reporting has a long history, and Twitter is the perfect outlet for it. Not only do you not have to write actual articles, all those words and whatnot, but there is zero accountability. Just don’t yell or #hashtag — fire.

Here’s a provisional schedule to help you prep your Tweets for Friday. Consider using a tool like Tweetdeck to help you schedule out Tweets — but be ready to respond to breaking faking news.

All the Tweets:

Directions (cont. in Section Twitter, page 4b)

Tweetdeck can be your Jive Tweeting mission control!

Hashtags:
