The first project I picked was the piece on @MayorEmanuel. I find novelty Twitter accounts really interesting, especially if they’re pulled off in a fresh or actually inventive way. Sinker’s project definitely did that in spades. Telling a story from his unique, punk point of view in politics was probably something the group surrounding the race didn’t expect. You couple that with the timeliness of the project and I think it’s an incredibly interesting endeavor to take on.
Next, I chose the @YourAuntDiane account. Really, really funny tweets coming in from this account. It’s not the hardest concept in the world, but it’d be really tough to pull off if the person behind it wasn’t actually funny. You need the thinking to come up with it, but the execution needs that extra juice. And that’s really my favorite part about this account: it’s just really funny. She’s (?) weaving a really interesting story on that timeline.
To keep the Twitter theme going to the end, I chose the reality TV show project for my final choice. What to love about this project is the sheer ambition. Cross-platforming this thing over four social media platforms is a daunting task. Another interesting thing about this project is the immersion you can subscribe to with it. I could easily see a teenager completely digging their claws into this. Especially because the characters will be so topical to their lives.
