Live Tweeting Maryland vs. Hawaii
Live tweeting the March Madness game between the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors and the Maryland Terrapins wasn’t a bad experience. Sports aren’t too difficult to live tweet, but require attention to detail. One thing I noticed was that tough because I was unfamiliar with the teams and the players was adding any sort of historical relevancy. Identifying which players were which was also difficult. In the future, I think it would be wise for me to download a roster before sitting down to tweet out the game. Even though the announcers and the on screen graphics identified the players when they would do something worth mentioning, I worried more about getting the information wrong or misspelling the player’s name than what it might add to the tweets.
