Welcome, Chicago Marketing Professionals!
Would you be interested in another screening of Twittamentary in Chicago?
We had a screening of #Twittamentary on September 29 at Heritage Park in Chicago with Food Trucks. This was the last session during Social Media Week Chicago 2012. Photos from the event are at: http://chicago-social-marketing.ning.com/photo/albums/twittamentary
Twittamentary looks at how lives connect and intersect within the Twitter community as the real-time web accelerates serendipity. Bonds are forged as a result of unexpected encounters between strangers as they share moments of their lives in real time.
The film is created in the open spirit of the Web. Twitter users have been invited to contribute story ideas, rich media and videos to the film via the movie’s initial submissions website . The launch of this website in August 2009 soon led to a whirlwind road trip across USA, where the filmmaker interviewed a wide range of Twitter'ers, from a travel journalist turned "twilebrity" to a homeless women who uses twitter from a public library to a prostitute who uses twitter as her personal GPS.
