I Tweet, Therefore I Am:
Alter-Egos, Identities and Covert Operations in Richmond Social Media
Who are you? And does it match how you portray yourself online?
The versions of ourselves on blogs, Facebook and Twitter can never fully represent who we are. But some people use social media to take things a giant step further: They tweet as someone else -- developing identities, lives and experiences entirely separate (or not) from themselves.
Why do they do it? How do they keep it up? Is it easier being anonymous? And what if someone else’s online identity is a parody of you?
With the help of Social Media Club Richmond we are going to try and answer these questions and more during what is shaping up to be one of our most entertaining events so far.
Style Weekly Editor in Chief Jason Roop (@jasonroop / @styleweekly) will be moderating a frank, fast-paced and likely mind-bending conversation with some of the most intriguing personalities on Richmond ’s social media landscape. You wont want to miss this one!
