Episode 70! In this episode we talk about social networks, what constitutes a social network, and the differences between them.

Sharing on social media has become a societal norm, but what about writing? How does this change the overarch of what writing can do? Should writing adapt to social media? What’s its role in social media?

We discussed Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, among others. But I really want to break down Twitter for a bit.

Twitter is unique in that it’s word focused and word driven, but at the same time not those things. I’ll explain.

Basically you’ve got Twitter, which in its essence is a forum to discuss new ideas or old ideas through words, limiting yourself to 140 characters. But is that limit a strength or a weakness?

I feel like one of the strengths of Twitter is to challenge us to evoke those emotions in one single tweet. WITHIN those 140 characters. And it’s hard. It’s not easy to do this “word economy” thing.

Tweets can be extremely powerful. As powerful as words allow. Whether it’s something like “Delete your account” or a report on a live even going on at that exact moment somewhere in the world, Twitter and its 140 word restriction is a really important one.


We talk about Facebook and Youtube in our episode, but I feel we didn’t Twitter the amount of time it deserves. So there it is. Time. That is deserves. For the others, be sure to listen to the episode and let us know what you think on Twitter!
