Lost in the Twitterverse…

Just a quick update to say I’ve been exploring my chosen area of Torchwood on Twitter over the last few days (since my last post) and am finding it interesting/tricky to work out the best way to conceptually map the conversations/locations etc. of the people Tweeting. I’m thinking I might take a snapshot day or conversation and manually pull some of that information together so I have a manageable number of interactions and community characteristics to map.

I’ve made a wee xtranormal video of some typical postings to give a little visual/audio fun in my account and found that useful for eeking out a sense of themes/key users and who and why I was filtering some postings to make that little vid make sense – more on that when I post up the ethnography and/or making of blog post.

So far it’s proving very interesting trying to understand a community based on such a small specific snapshot of active online space. But again, more on that later…
