Overview – Twitter is the social networking tool that has taken the world by storm. Used by celebrities and even royalty it has captured the imagination of all those that use it. The key feature of Twitter is that users have only 140 characters in which to get across their message. Consequently, users have to ensure they get to the point and deliver information in a clear, but concise way, which is the key concept of this training game.
Introduce the concept of Twitter to the participants and advise them that you would like them to use the 140 character concept to describe the learning element or topic you are focusing on. They should then spend some time developing a ‘tweet’ of 140 characters or less to get their message across. Once the participants have completed the task, ask them to read out their ‘tweet’ to the whole group.
Use this training game to test participants knowledge on a product or service and ensure that they appreciate how best to present the information in a succinct way.
