Getting to the heart of Twitter

So J asked me along to a screening of Tan Siok Siok’s Twittamentary held at an MBA seminar at SMU and it was a great experience. Had seen the trailer and was glad to be able to catch the whole thing now. So I learned stock traders tweet real time financial updates, a female trucker advocated against sexual violence in the trucking industry and animal rescue, pundits see the Twitter era as a ‘golden age for news consumers’, and how Twitter helps to construct one’s ‘social media resume’. All very informative stuff that I hopefully can use when on the topic of new media later this term. I made a comment which J said took the room a bit, which was a nice observation, but what struck me was the great feeling of being in class again. Maybe I should seriously think about that Terrorism Studies course again.
