If You Can Twitter, You can Finish the Bar Exam in Plenty of Time
So says Mary Campbell Gallagher, veteran bar prep coach:
People fail the bar exam because they don’t finish the essays. They spend so much time on an early essay that they can’t write the later essays. Or they work on all of the essays, but without finishing some or all of them. Either way, these bar candidates are writing too slowly, and it costs them their ticket to a law license. Finishing is key.
The good news is that writing slowly is not inborn, or the result of slow genes. On the contrary, slow writers and fast writers do different things when they write, they don’t just do the same things at different speeds. Change what you do, and you can finish the essays and your tasks on the Multistate Performance Test (MPT) or the California Performance Test (PT), perhaps even with time to spare.
Twittering requires thinking through you message before you “write” and getting to the point. You can find five tips for finishing faster here.

"Twittering requires thinking through you message before you 'write' and getting to the point." Actually, I think you meant to write, "Effective twittering requires thinking through your message before you 'write' and getting to the point." There's a lot of bad writing, sloppy messaging, and ill-considered tweets floating around the twittersphere, as demonstrated by the number of "bad tweets" that deserve, and receive, widespread criticism.
