I’m in a Pop Culture and Communication class and we were assigned a project to show the power and potential of Twitter. For my project, I decided to craft a murder mystery that will take place entirely through a real time Twitter feed.
Seven characters are going to a mansion for a dinner party when—what do you know—a murder takes place. Along with the host of the party, his surly butler, and the determined detective the crime will (probably) be solved.
You can follow along on Wednesday March 30th starting at 7PM EST. It will take place for about three hours.
There are two ways to watch all of the comedic action. Keep track of the hashtag #popclue. All of the tweets will have that tag.
Or you can follow all 10 characters which you can find at these links:
UPDATED: Another way to keep track of the story is to follow the list featuring all of these character: http://twitter.com/AustinLugar/twitter-murder-mystery-2
This will be an entertaining experiment in telling a story with a new platform. There will be plenty of jokes and clues through the duration. The more people follow along the more fun it will be. So if you think this sounds good, please tell your friends to follow these accounts or the hashtag. (If you write about this, I would love to know.)
I hope to see you on Twitter this Wednesday at 7PM!
