If improvisation was a social network, which one would it be…I think Twitter.
There is a short form game involving 2 players usually, where a short scene is enacted, based on an audience suggestion and it is timed and cut at 1 minute, the scene is then replayed but can only last 30 seconds, then again for 20 seconds, then again for 10 and then again for 5 and again for just 1 second. The consequence of this, is that the scene gets boiled down to its most important points, verbally and in action – usually very funny!
So, how does this connect with social networking – well, if you want to learn how to write excellent Tweets or Status Updates on Google + and Facebook, then you would benefit from playing this game. It really helps you get to the point and avoid the bull.
