We have created a twitter account to live twitter and associate with our livestream site ( we aim to give a real life account of our experiences)

Livestreaming is an amazing tool  for community interaction and engagement as we are able to broadcast in REAL time  our experiences to a mobile screen at an event or even onto the internet where you can watch anywhere! :)

In this video, Hendrik Beune and Peter Davies demonstrate livestreaming :)

This was filmed by April Smith of AHA MEDIA on a Nokia N95 mobile cameraphone.

AHA MEDIA visits La Casa Gelato and uses Twitter to tell about the experience in real time in Vancouver

May 16, 2009 Leave a comment

AHA MEDIA took trip to La Casa Gelato near Commercial Drive in Vancouver http://www.lacasagelato.com/.

La Casa 1

We wanted to treat ourselves after working very hard at Vancouver Digital Week doing livestreaming, live twitter, mobile new media photography and videography with our social media connections.

#PopVox09 11

Keeping with our new lessons from the week, we decided to keep using Twitter, a fantastic social media tool to keep interacting with each other and our community. We have a very strong desire to stay connected and keep learning :)

We picked La Casa Gelato as it was near our area of the Vancouver Downtown Eastside ( DTES). Our purpose was two fold – to eat some great ice cream and to use “Twitter” to “tweet” or give live updates on our dining experience. :)

La Casa 2

We created on Twitter a new account: @Tweets_and_Eats

We combined the two words of  “Tweets and Eats ” to make a new word called “Tweats” and built a new and separate Food Review site for our dining experiences in Vancouver

http://www.tweats.wordpress.com

 Here is a photo of Peter Davies trying to “tweet and eat” at the exact same time.

 AHA MEDIA aims to continually be progressing in their knowledge so that may do better mobile new media production :)
