For the assignment I attended the women’s basketball game Wednesday, December 4th. I don’t have data on my phone so I couldn’t tweet at the game however, I wrote down all the tweets I wanted to tweet so all I had to do was go home and tweet them. I did a live-post for this event. They played against the Colorado Buffs who are ranked 11th. The event took place at the arena-auditorium, also known as the AA. The cowgirls came into this game with a overall record of 3-2. I really enjoyed this experience because I got to watch a sporting event. I liked being able to tweet about this event as a reporter because I felt like I was important if that makes sense. This was a interesting event and I enjoyed every moment of it. One thing that I didn’t like about the experience was that it was hard to just watch and enjoy the game while writing down the tweets. I couldn’t just relax and enjoy the game. But that’s okay because thinking of tweets was fun. I learned that when reporting a live event you need to know background on the event and people who are in the event. It really surprised me how hard it would be watching the game while tweeting while knowing info about the teams and the girls names. If I could have done something differently in this assignment was study the teams that were playing the day before or even before the game so I knew more about the teams and players. In the future for social media I see myself using it for working with a professional soccer team. That would be awesome! I really enjoyed this assignment!
Again, I apologize for having to tweet after the game when I got home. My data on my phone isn’t working. However, I wrote down every tweet I wanted to tweet on a piece of paper.
