Live Tweeting Project

We were recently asked in MJD219 to Live Tweet an event that interested us. The event that I chose was the Saint Michael’s College Women’s Soccer game against Pace. For this project, I used two hashtags in each of my Tweets. I used the hashtags #smcvtsoccer and #mjd219.
  1. And a quick goal to start off the game! Saint Mike’s leads Pace 1-0 #smcvtsoccer #mjd219
  2. And Saint Mike’s called for the penalty, but no cards given #smcvtsoccer #mjd219
  3. Saint Mike’s with a close shot, but saved by Pace goalie #smcvtsoccer #mjd219
  4. Pace had a chance but basically walked the ball out of bounds #smcvtsoccer #mjd219
  5. Pace with a shot over the goal, Saint Mike’s still leads 1-0 #smcvtsoccer #mjd219
  6. Saint Mike’s with two near misses! SMC still leads Pace 1-0 #smcvtsoccer #mjd219
  7. Pace ties the game up at 1 apiece with a penalty kick header after a handball by SMC #smcvtsoccer #mjd219
  8. Saint Mike’s with a nice attempt on the corner kick #smcvtsoccer #mjd219
  9. HALFTIME! Saint Mike’s and Pace tied up at 1 goal each #smcvtsoccer #mjd219
  10. SMC almost has their second goal but Pace goalie saved it #smcvtsoccer #mjd219
  11. Saint Mike’s with another close shot but another save by Pace. Game still knotted at 1-1 #smcvtsoccer #mjd219
  12. The temperature is low but the spirits are high from the fans #smcvtsoccer #mjd219
  13. With 10 minutes left in the game it’s still tied 1-1 #smcvtsoccer #mjd219
  14. And this game is headed to overtime! Tied 1-1 after regulation #smcvtsoccer #mjd219
  15. First overtime is over and game is still tied up at 1 #smcvtsoccer #mjd219
  16. Under 2 minutes into second overtime Pace puts one in the goal, win the game 2-1. Good fighting knights! #smcvtsoccer #mjd219

Overall, the Knights lost the game 2-1 to Pace, but the game was well played. It was very cold and raining,  but the fans stayed the entire game, never giving up hope. Throughout the stands, you could always hear cheering for Saint Mike’s, and there were obvious objections to calls against Saint Mike’s. My hands were numb by the end of the game, and I had all that I could do to Tweet throughout most of the game. It was hard keeping up with what was going on constantly, because I would go to Tweet something and something else exciting would happen so I would have to go and Tweet another thing immediately after. In the end, though, I can definitely say that it was fun.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, I hope you enjoyed it.

Tweets from students in MJD219 who were live tweeting events

Recently in MJD219 we were asked to use Storify, a website that takes posts on social media websites and creates a story using them, to take posts that are about MJD219 and do the same. Because many people have already started doing their live tweeting projects (the game I will be live tweeting does not start until November 2nd), I decided to use some of these tweets. Below, you can find the Storify version of some of the tweets that students have used for their live tweeting.

  1. Senior day at Duffy Field as SMC Mens Soccer recognizes four seniors from the class of 2014 #mjd219 #smcmenssoccer t.co/PrsrylVF8q
  2. Game. Set. Match. Adelphi wins set four 25-21, beat #smcvb 3-1 #mjd219
  3. #23 for the knights receives a yellow card with ten minutes left in the game #mjd219
  4. Saint Mike’s loses 1-0 as time expires despite a valiant effort in chilly, windy and wet conditions #mjd219 #smcmenssoccer
  5. Pedroia and Ortiz with back to back doubles. Pedroia to score. 1-0 Sox! #mjd219

Princess Diana “Live Tweeting”

Recently in our MJD219 class, we were asked to watch a short segment of the speech given by Princess Diana’s brother at her funeral. We were told to “live tweet” during this, although we were allowed to tweet in a word document so that we did not annoy all of our twitter followers with something that happened many years ago. 

We watched the entire speech once and just took notes on it, and then we were told to turn those notes into tweets, but to make sure that they were no longer than 140 characters each, which is the model for tweets on Twitter.

For our homework assignment, we were told to use Storify to make a story of our tweets. Not wanting to end up accidentally posting them to my Twitter account, I just made an account and did not connect it to any of my actual accounts. You can read the tweets that I took here.

I really enjoyed this exercise in class. It really showed us how difficult it can be to live tweet sometimes. You may not get all of the information that you want because things in life don’t happen at the pace that you want them to. You have to try and get as much detail as you can, all the while accepting the fact that you are probably going to miss some stuff, so you have to choose what is important and what is not important, and I know for a fact it is something that I will have to work on.

 

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed what I had to say.
