  1. You covered a wide scope of topics which is good. I think the tweets could be more conversational and maybe a little more targeted toward a college audience.

  2. I think you definitely took into consideration the tone of the stories, like how some tweets were more conversational while some were more serious. Overall, I like it. The capitalized #ILLINOIS is a pretty nice touch.
