I now have a stronger appreciation for microblogging and Twitter as a platform

Throughout the show, I was tweeting my thoughts and opinions whilst responding to other people’s thoughts. Here are some of the figures of engagement I received from my tweets!

I now have more confidence microblogging on Twitter

Initially, live-tweeting and tweeting, in general, seemed like something that was extremely out of my comfort zone, as I naturally leaned towards Instagram as a platform and hated formulating my own tweets out of fear of judgment. But I was actually impressed with how well I started to engage with microblogging the more I tweeted, and I reaped the benefits of this as towards the end I felt confident voicing my own thoughts and opinions as well as finding enjoyment from hearing other people’s thoughts and responses.
