Instructional design in 140 characters #140id

MP900405536When I talk about the power of the simplicity of Twitter, people often tell me you can’t say much in 140 characters.

So I then usually point them to the very popular Twitter account @cookbook, where on a regular basis Maureen Evans tweets “tiny recipes”, like the ones embedded below.


Maureen obviously needs to use a glossary of terms to pack so much information into one tweet – so here is her Cookbook Glossary.

This got me thinking, could we do the same for other knowledge domains in order to provide some shared daily tips or instructions?

Anybody like to have a go at writing a tweet that contains the instructions for doing something – either on a work-based or personal topic? If you do, can you squeeze in the hashtag #140id so that we can make a collection on Twitter – and if you need to build a glossary, could you provide a link to that in another tweet.


Here are some #140id tweets:
