Abstract:Twitter, a social media tool, is a current traditional media darling. Twitter began as a way to share information between friends, particularly the everyday exchanges that make up any social group, but Twitter became much more, due to its ability to capture the global pulse with immediacy and to expand on its bare 140 characters with hyperlinks. At present, Twitter is one of the fastest-growing social media sites. The researcher seeks to bring the immediacy to her college course on government, LAW101, to increase student perception of the relevance of governmental actions to their lives. This paper describes the usage by the researcher of Twitter in her online, face to face, and hybrid LAW101 courses over the past three semesters.
