Using Twitter rules (280 characters or less), construct a four Tweet conversation between two of the different perspectives (an environmentalist, a working class consumer, a Democratic advisor to President Jimmy Carter, a Republican advisor to Richard Nixon, an oil company executive, an advocate of alternative energy sources) reflected in the week’s Primary Source PDF.

You will need to invent Twitter handles for your two individuals, and in the Tweets you write you will need to come up with at least four different hashtags (these can come in your first post or in subsequent posts).

Both of your characters must write four separate Tweets in your initial post, for a total of eight Tweets.  Retweets are only allowed if you add something new.

In this Twitter conversation be sure that your characters assess the impact of both the energy crisis and the environmental crisis on the U.S. economy.
