Twittamentary, A Social Media Experiment In Search Of “Character 141”
A sneak peek preview of Twittamentary was held at the Roger Smith Hotel last evening in Manhattan.
Hosted by the Singaporean award-winning movie producer Siok Siok Tan, the film, currently in post-production, was offered up to a screening room full of social media types.
From a homeless woman who accesses Twitter in a public library and finds friends from around the world that eventually aid her in securing housing to a travel journalist turned “twilebrity” who has built a following of over one million by using Twitter as a travel guidebook, these “stories” covered a wide range of human experience.
Siok Siok describes Twitter as ‘mythic’ – a universe as compelling as it is illusive. Perhaps the “Character 141” that Siok Siok still needs to add to her film are the stories from the Twitter founders.
