Possibly a self-defeating Tweet, this one. Was it ‘posting for the sake of posting’? But liking the double-play of Twitter as a maximum of 140 characters, and one’s character brought to Twitter. And, over time and use, shaped and changed by it.
Also liking, within the confines of a Tweet, the decisions one is forced to make. ‘Just one character difference’ or ‘Just one-character difference’? At the moment, feeling that digital cultures are made up of billions of micro-moments, the bytes that have teeth, and chew it all over – us, included?
I’ve tagged this post ‘unity and diversity’. It’s the first part of a string of four posts discussed above (under the fourth post).
With this Tweet, aiming to kick off the lifestream, with an acknowledgement that we all come to the course from a somewhere – both in location, and in duration. Years and particular places, brought into the realm of Digital Cultures.
Unlike Job 1:21, we all bring something into these digital worlds.
Welcome to Education and Digital Cultures 2017. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!
Aha, good to have a prefabricated first post. Thank you to the person who put this here. A few minutes ago, I sent my first tweet intended to arrive here, and then I hot-footed it onto the blog to see if it had arrived. No sign of it yet.
When it comes, it will be topically appropriate as a start. But how long do IFTTT Applets take to work? How do I find out if I’ve set it up correctly?
Hum. Lifestream… Lifeglacier, perhaps.
