Twitter served as one of the primary locations for community building and character interactions in Noir106. Not only were students required to create personal accounts at the beginning of the semester, but they also had to create Twitter accounts for their characters. Communication and community building is not only fundamental to the DS106 experience, but also the storytelling through transmedia narrative. The hashtag “#noir106″ was used to identify tweets related to the class, whether character conversations, creative work, or part of a live tweeting experience. Below is the #noir106 feed.
