I am looking for (a) A printout of your type and (b) A printout of your occupation along with salary (c) Now answer the assignment I have handed you on the first day.

Computer Apps and Cyberculture:

Your first order of business is to get an e-mail account if you don’t have one. Some suggested email providers are hotmail.com, gmail (Google’s provider) or yahoo.com. Whatever you choose, please make sure it has the ability to use attachments so that I can receive any future work. I am doing this to go paperless.

Following this, I would like you to read the article below. You are to compose a two page, double-spaced document with 1.5 inch margins that answers the questions given to you in class regarding Twitter.
