Summarize, write, edit, tweet: Part 2

Same as last week:

Write tweets for these 5 stories–after you’ve read the story and are certain you know what it’s about. Stay within 100-120 characters.

It’s important to correctly summarize the story. Be careful about misplaced modifiers.

Spelling counts.

Write in the active voice.

Eliminate unnecessary words.
