What is Twittamentary?

Twittamentary explores how lives meet and affect one another on the fast growing micro-blogging phenomena that is Twitter.

    Wonderful! This was a very needed metric-check of the non-buyer related ROI to Twitter (and likewise, other social media methods) that we rarely ever see. A homeless woman is homed with a job, a prostitute gets out of the trade, an everyday hero saves a damsel in distress...all via Twitter. And the cool thing is, these things are just skimming the surface of the kind of humanitarian good Twitter and other social media platforms do every day. As community leaders, we know that it's in the one-to-one connections that the true genius and potential of social media is revealed. Siok, the director shared so much in her journey with this film and also in her chat with us before and after we watched. The running tweetstream during the film was worth it for the connection and enrichment value alone as we all made contacts with the participants who were gracious and giving, keeping up a spirited dialogue. If you missed missed a lot. Let's screen this again next year. Worth it!
