when Twitter was first introduced in class, i honestly didn’t see the point of having to use it or even be graded based on using it (SORRY DR.V, but you’ll like what i have to say about it, i promise). i remember the first presentation that we did at the beginning of the semester and i was so nervous because i honestly do NOT enjoy public speaking. a few weeks later when we were assigned the “Internet Culture” presentations, i was surprised to see how easy i was about it. i was not stressed out because I’m going to present nor was i nervous, i felt like i knew everyone that was in class to an extent that i was comfortable to present.
Dr.V, you mentioned in class that we should have done these presentations earlier in the semester. i disagree, twitter honestly made me more comfortable, it takes time to get to interact with people and form some kind of comfort bond with them.
Bottom line, this is one of the many benefits that i have discovered about Twitter. and THANK YOU Dr.V, i really did not think that i will ever be that casual about presenting 🙂
