#KU WWI Twitter Project

June 28, 2014

The CREES #KUWWI Twitter Project is a Twitter-based reenactment of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo. Project Director Sam Moore is collecting tweets until late May. Two mini-reenactments are being translated into German and Bosnian and will be used to promote the project starting May 15 (@KU_WWI twitter feed). Sam will then begin writing the master script. To add an element of live-tweeting, participants will have a chance to tweet as their characters on June 28th. See the Lawrence Journal World article: http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2014/apr/28/ku-project-will-retell-ferdinands-assassination-tw/.
