Internet Explorers: Is Twitter bad, or is it the worst?”
See below more detailed event information:
Mark Vigeant uses comedy to explore and demystify technology so that people can be aware, informed, and empowered.
Internet Explorers is his monthly live show where he takes sold out audiences (and thousands of livestreamers on Twitch) deep into a corner of the Internet to learn and laugh about everything from memes, artificial intelligence, and e-commerce to online dating, hacking, and the dark web.
This month’s show is all about the stream of Internet poison known as Twitter, the only company Trump’s current presidency has actually saved. Okay but is it really that bad? Haven’t they figured out how to not make it a toxic wasteland filled with trolls, bots and reply guys? You’ll have to come to the show to find out! Mark will be going deep into Twitter: bot twitter, weird twitter, brand twitter and beyond! And as always he’ll be joined by his bffs Sam Reece & Rollie Williams, with live music by Darren Solomon.
