Live Tweeting Curation, Part II

GEORGIA VAN DE VORST

After taking my feedback into consideration, moving forward I aimed to increase the amount of tweets I was producing and also increase my engagement with my peers.

Week Eight: i, Robot

I find it very helpful before the movie starts to research the basic facts as I still struggle with tweeting and paying in depth attention to the storyline of the movie. With this in mind, I am able to also find interesting articles about the movie that I can share with my peers.

Taking my feedback from my previous tweets curation, I tried to tweet more beneficial tweets for my both peers and myself. I also tried to focus specifically on tweeting things that would get more engagement.

Em Hawken: The Future of Robots 

Em’s digital artefact surrounds the idea of assessing the evolution of robots and their effect on social and culture due to the technological innovations that will come about in the next 10, 15 or 25 years. Through the main use of a wordpress blog, and accompanying social media platforms, Em plans to address all aspects both past and present of robots and how they will effect our lives in the future.

In order to help Em progress further, I used my feedback to insinuate that although the idea is very solid, it has the potential to be strengthened even further. The topic of the digital artefact has been narrowed down, due to feedback from peers, to create a lighter workload and have a more niche topic. This was important in assuring the digital artefact was able to be presented at it’s best, which was…

My digital artefact aims to emphasise and educate on the psychological risks and effect on physical health that image manipulation can have. Millions of young women regularly use social media sites, such as Instagram, to share pictures of themselves with an audience of followers (Pew Research Center, 2016).  It is because of this that false depictions and manipulated images may lead to thin and un-idealistic depictions on social media that can potentially intensify or mitigate detrimental effects.

Taking some critical feedback into consideration, I have been able to adapt my idea to progress further to target the idea of future cultures, and also be able to target and educate a more specified audience.

My digital artefact reflects the connotations of how everything on social media has become fake. By addressing and highlighting this concern I am going to draw attention to an observation in patterns and trends, which demonstrates the harm that the manipulation of images on social media is having upon society.

Through an Instagram account, I will be targeting the over-dramatisation and extreme lengths that celebrities will go to achieve what they perceive as the “perfect” persona on instagram, regardless of the effect that it has proven to have on society. I will also be investigating the effect that manipulation of images on social media will have in 5 or 10 years.
