Relating this week’s assignment was struggling to me, until I was watching the news today and I saw something that made me reflect on some of the things that I have been learning in class. Everywhere we go we see people using twitter or referring to twitter and using twitter language. Some of us know and use this daily, while others don’t even know where to begin. I can relate this to Public Relations, because getting to know the use of “public norms” can be struggling and frustrating if we don’t get the concept of it. On the news they were talking about how to use “hash tags”, and how to add people that you’re talking about to your tweet, and why “tweeting” might be something that could help you out.
It was the research but into how to tweet that got my attention. Figuring out how to do something that everyone is doing, so that you can help them relate is what makes you interesting to the world. It’s hard to think about and might get confusing, but if you really think about it, people will listen to what you have to say, if you relate what you’re saying to something that they know or use daily. It’s something to think about..
