Murder on Twitter Tonight

murder in chalk

Austin Lugar is a telecommunications major at Ball State University and for a Pop Culture class project he’s writing an entire murder mystery on Twitter. It will happen tonight starting at about 7:00 p.m. EST and will last for about three hours. Here are the details from his blog:

Seven characters are going to a mansion for a dinner party when—what do you know—a murder takes place. Along with the host of the party, his surly butler, and the determined detective the crime will (probably) be solved.

There are two ways to watch all of the comedic action. Keep track of the hashtag #popclue. All of the tweets will have that tag.

Or you can follow all 10 characters which you can find at these links:

This will be an entertaining experiment in telling a story with a new platform. There will be plenty of jokes and clues through the duration. The more people follow along the more fun it will be. So if you think this sounds good, please tell your friends to follow.

I don’t know about you, but I think it looks like fun. Hope to see you there! ~Cricket
