How do we communicate professionally on social media? This was the challenge presented to our summer interns, Clara and Alex. The following post is an edited and reimagined version of Clara’s imagination of what would have happened if the events of the Three Little Pigs had been Tweeted by the involved parties.
Between remembering to hashtag for the sake of searching, and trying to stay within the 140 character minimums, Twitter can be challenging for the most experienced professional communicators. In today’s world, so much of our news is delivered via tweet, so understanding the way to communicate in that manner is more important than ever before!
I challenge you not to laugh as you check out these Twitter handles and hashtags. This edit is even more professional (and just as funny!) as the previous version of this post. Great job Clara! -Megan, Educational Coordinator.
Professional Tweets of The Three Little Pigs. By Clara, Intern.
