To reflect upon this live tweeting activity, I have to say that it’s my first time live tweeting a sports event, and it’s way harder than I imagined. In order to live tweet efficiently, I had to prepare beforehand, all the players’ twitter handles, all the relevant hashtags for the game, and etc. However, because I have to tweet during the game, it was really distracting and stressful. The game was meant to be enjoyable, but live tweeting completely destroyed the experience for me. There are certainly benefits of live tweeting a sports game, mostly to keep people, who are unable to attend the game, updated with what’s happening in real time. The Drawbacks are it makes the experience so much more stressful, especially if you are not an expert at live tweeting. From this assignment, I reassured myself that Twitter is not something I want to use, it takes away a lot of fun from live football matches. The game itself was really good, it was a good match up between the two teams, but not going to lie, it’s probably the worst experience I’ve had watching a football game because I was have to constantly tweet about it.
