A dare: Going viral

In pairs: Come up with two micromessages with the intent of going viral.  No pornography, no intimate revelations or outings—but otherwise, come up with whatever you can think of to get a lot of responses on some social platform or public website. Post your micromessages. See what happens (or not). Be ready to relate your strategies in composing to Johnson’s ideas and advice in Microstyle.
