The goal is simple: We twit/tweet/whatever our nanoreviews using Twitter and then aggregate them so we can compare notes. I’d like to be able to follow everyone’s critical tweets on Twitter and archive them on a web page (blog, tumblog, whatever). I was hoping to start heavy use of it this Sunday watching the season premier of The Wire.
Basically – if you’re not a Twitterer – when you write your 140-characters-or-less post and include @twitcrit your mini-review of, well, whatever entertainment they are watching, will be aggregated into the @twitcrit feed.
A rational, cynical part of me thinks: but I’ll just see a bunch of unmediated reviews of stuff I might not be interested in. But the joyful geek part of personality just wants to go and play.
Meanwhile, and please don’t worry for my sanity, the analyst in me is thinking, what other micro-channels will people think of like this. And the Catholic-guiltmonger sub-persona is saying: well remember the E.ON commentary on the Tour of Britain and the case study you promised yourself and then anyone reading Open that you’d write last year, you tardy, blog-shy dog!
And, oh yeah, a best-colleague-of-the-year contender has brought me back the box-set of The Wire series four from the States – very excited (see posts passim re: The Wire obsession) – and will be reviewing even as US viewers enjoy season five (cannot download, must have mint DVDs of this show).
Video: Opening credits for The Wire season five’s opening episode – as far as I will be going until the DVDs are out in six months or so… argh!
