DEN Project

Yellow Raleigh Chopper – Nottingham City Museum

 

To look at this object, the micro-blogging website Twitter was used.  123 tweets were made over a period of 7 days.  During this time it got 52 followers, 45 replies and 20 mentions.

The tweets were written by a copywriter and former MA creative writing student Gregory Povey. You can read his take on the project below.

Gregory used a mixture of pre-written Tweets as well as responses to followers’ comments. From the main Twitter site he used other sites such as Spotify, Youtube and GoogleMap with links to give the story a strong sense of pace.

 The tweets followed the story of the bike given as a gift in the 1970s to its arrival at Nottingham City Museum.  There were a few surprises in the story along the way. You can find out more through the twitter link on this project page!
