I enjoyed being able to experience live tweeting from an event. When I use twitter as a personal account, it is hardly live tweeting from an event. So that was a new experience for me. The only thing I didn’t enjoy doing was having to remember to write down a tweet throughout the entire game. I love sports, so I get sucked into the game and forgot to tweet at times.
I learned that it is most definitely a multi-tasking job. You have to pay attention to details in the game as well as creating a tweet without getting side-tracked. The thing that surprised me the most, is how side-tracked you can get during an event without even noticing how involved you are observing the event. There really isn’t anything I would have done differently.
I would only use twitter for personal use. So I would have to say I can’t see myself using twitter for a future career. I wasn’t a big fan of tweeting informative tweets. I would much rather sit and watch the game instead of having to tweet as well. But if I happen to get a job that requires the use of social media, I would definitely use it. Thanks to this class I know the proper way to use several types of social media.
