Quick Write 091411 “Beauty of Tweeting in English 2”

In yesterday’s QW 0913 piece, I argued that Tweeting in English is one of the good English learning methods, motivating learners to be more attentive to their own mistakes and enabling them to write with enhanced accuracy. In light of the feature that posted tweets are not editable, those who try to tweet in English would scrutinize their English to avoid embarrassment and regret. Even if some errors are made in tweets or Direct Messages, all texts are kept and can be reviewed later, and will be the great resource for us to learn from our own mistakes. In addition to this, I’d like to mention the beauty of the 140-letter limitation in Tweeting in English. It can be a good practice to organize your thoughts economically.

To convey your messages clearly, cleverly, and cogently in English within the 140-letter limitation, you cannot waste every single word need to make sure that you waste no word so that you present your thoughts in just 2 or 3 sentences. You’ll need to consider effective word choices and economical sentence construction. This can be a good exercise for English language learners to be able to avoid redundancy and get to the point without diluting the essence of what they have to say. In case of exchanging Direct Messages (DMs) in English, the 140-letter limitation takes a higher toll on you, I suppose. Tweets are meant for the entire followers, not someone in particular (officially), and are always so-called “one-way” messages. DMs, on the other hand, are for “two-way” interaction, and thus miscommunication could take you to somewhere unexpected. In this sense, DMing requires you to be even more clear and cogent. But high stakes that DMing entails will give you opportunities and motives to express your thoughts, ideas, and feelings both effectively and economically. If you’ve already started tweeting in English, DMing can be added to your English learning menu. It’s highly recommendable. (End)
