  32. 32. Twitter is a game •One could argue that services for sharing/constructing collective knowledge online are also games (even if they are not presented as such). •The success of Twitter is linked with its smooth Onboarding process. Digital Humanities 101 - 2013/2014 - Course 1 | 2013 32 o
  33. 33. Twitter's on boarding process •Motivating Emotion: A new user tries Twitter because he is curious of this service. •Social call to action: He discovers the two basic actions : follow people and write Tweets. He tries both. Digital Humanities 101 - 2013/2014 - Course 1 | 2013 33 o
  34. 34. Twitter's on boarding process •User-rengagement : The user leaves Twitter at this stage not sure whether he will come back or not. With a little chance, someone retweets his message or reply to him. He sees his name with a @ and infers the use of this typographic sign. This continues triggering his curiosity. He may comeback to continue the conversation. Digital Humanities 101 - 2013/2014 - Course 1 | 2013 34 o
  35. 35. Twitter's on boarding process •Visible progress: If his tweets are relevant, the number of his followers starts to increase. This explicit measure of his importance on Twitter motivates him to continue to tweet with a more or less conscious objective to get more followers. Digital Humanities 101 - 2013/2014 - Course 1 | 2013 35 o
  36. 36. Live Tweeting •As the Twitter user becomes more expert, his perception of the social engagement loop changes. •He may track his social capital as measured by various services (e.g. Klout score) •He discovers the best hours for twitting and optimizing RT. •Consciously or unconsciously, he optimises his writing style to play better the game of Twitter.
