Within weeks 6-10 of live tweeting, I found opportunities to enhance my engagement with my peers. This was accomplished through polls, relatable content, commenting and linking lecture material.
Week 6: Blade Runner 2049
This film provided many interesting concepts which definitely helped me to think about my digital artefact (the future of beauty). The tweet below received a decent amount of engagement as it allowed my peers to think of other technical advances which were predicted in the film.
Week 7: The Matrix
During this week, I found an interesting link that related to the lecture content of AI’s and Cybernetics which I wanted to share with my peers. I also found that polls were a great source of engagement as it is more interesting and fun for my peers.
Commenting, tweeting and hashtaging was definitely successful as Paul McCarthy (CEO, Best Selling Author and Adjunct Professor) liked a tweet and followed my twitter account.
Week 9: Alita: Battle Angel
This was definitely my favourite film from the entire semester. It was also proven to be my most successful tweets in terms of engaging with my peers. This was due to engaging polls that made my peers think and relate to, as well as providing tweets with interesting imagery.
This week I found that engaging and retweeting my peers’ tweets led to an outstanding amount of likes and retweets.
Week 10: Ready Player One
This was also one of my most favourable films as it is reflects on virtual reality and it is something I find very interesting. This week I found an interesting link to the lecture topic of cybernetics discussing the future and how VR effects it, which i tweeted to share with my peers. This topic also made me reflect on my digital artefact, as virtual reality is a large possibility in the future of beauty. I also found that polls were once again successful to engage with my peers and it helped that I ask questions for my peers to comment their answers.
Overall, I found that asking questions and providing polls is a successful way to engage with my peers as it is more interesting and relatable for them.
