First Blog Post

Hi guys! My name is Madeline Fairley and I’m a freshman here at UGA. I’m from Alpharetta, GA, a northern suburb of Metro-Atlanta, and I graduated from Blessed Trinity High School in Roswell. I’m currently a biology major on a pre-med track, but have started to look into other possible majors that interest me. I have always dreamt of becoming a doctor or physician’s assistant, as these careers offer a way for me to fulfill my passions for science and helping others. I’m living in Mell Hall (in between Creswell and Bolton) and have absolutely loved the time I’ve spent at UGA so far, and can’t wait for what’s to come (especially football games)!

Here’s my shot at a tetrad:


Enhances: Allows one to “tweet” about their day-to-day lives, topics they’re interested in, or anything they feel like.

Retrieves: Allows one to keep in touch with their followers while simultaneously keeping up with the lives of those they follow, whether it’s that of their best friend or their favorite celebrity. Users can instantly retrieve information about almost anyone (who uses Twitter, anyway) or anything, through the use of hashtags.

Reverses into: An over-sharing of information or an intake of unwanted information. Some users may become addicted to Twitter, and therefore, share unnecessary tweets with their followers.

Obsolesces: Texting, phone calls, or other social media platforms, such as Facebook.
