What Do Tweets Really Mean

7 Feb

Ever wonder sometimes about what folks really mean in tweets?


Well, I do. And I wondered about this on so much that I made stuff up.

Here is what I did.

I selected a tweet with a link and wondered where the link would go. In this case one from @cogdog
In this case it had two users: @jimgroom and @bgumm
I wondered about the tweet? What did it say?
It mentions men on the moon so I used the Twitter avatars of the two mentioned and placed them on the moon. I used an image from Flickr by David Wiley  (@opencontent ) with the following license:

The text in the tweet read, “I expected the url to be located on how.ly 😉 There are faces on the moon”

Here is where the link should go.

I also made this into a #ds106 assignment. It is here.
