Week 8: Writing in the active voice.
Subject – verb – object.
Omit unnecessary words.
Twitter is a great resource to learn how to write actively, directly and succinctly.
Read each of the following articles and write a tweet in the active voice that summarizes a key point from the article. Your tweet should be a sentence that both summarizes the actual content and would most likely cause the reader to click to read more. Avoid click-bait phrases, though. Keep your tweet at no more than 120 characters to allow room for a link and possible retweets.
Use this tool: http://www.wordcounter.net/ to count the number of characters.
Once you are sure your tweet is 110-120 characters, copy and paste the tweet into a Word document with your name on it.
Use the number that corresponds to the article to number your tweets.
