When you write scripts for broadcast, it is important to keep your writing simple and easy to understand and follow. A simple setup and structure is a must. Your main elements should include a strong lead to prepare the audience for your topic, a strong body of information, and a strong end. It is also important to mix your shots and have different views throughout your piece so you do not have the same angle throughout your videos entirety.

In the reading the authors talk about using twitter as a form of microblogging.

Though Twitter , like the rest of the internet, can be subject to misinformation and can often be taken too seriously before the topic is thoroughly researched.

A major upside to Twitter is its limit on the amount of characters can go into a tweet (280). This allows the reader to receive the information very quickly without having to read multiple page articles and stories to get what they want to know unlike other social media outlets like Facebook where the users have an unlimited amount and can make their posts as long as they want.
