Twittamentary: the Twitter film that explores where social media is @ | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
This search for a human angle is what makes Twittamentary so watchable. The introductory scene gives the viewer a brief grounding in what Twitter is and some of the numbers around the site – 350m tweets a day – to give a sense of scale. Then the stories take centre stage.
