This project was one of my first forays into social media-related research. Politwits is an in-depth essay on how American politics are affected by Twitter, and it includes a Prezi reinforcing the essay’s main points. After this assignment, I had a much deeper respect for social media. I also learned how to adapt longform journalism to interactive media.
I love the interactivity of the Prezi component of this piece. Again, this was one of the first pieces I did that started exploring the effects of social media. I would go on to do several more.
