Part 1: Visual Map
The word I chose was “tweet”
I have 3 photos below, one is of the entire visual graph and the other two are close ups of each of the sides of the graph ( real time, and virtual time.)

Part 2: Performance Action
Social Media Verb: To Tweet
Action: To whistle
My word was Tweet. An action that went along with the word tweet that I thought would be appropriate to “perform” to others would be to whistle. I love whistling, my grandma taught me how to whistle when I was only two years old. I whistle when I am happy, and whistling usually makes other people happy as well so I thought my performance action would be to whistle a song to each of the ten characters assigned as a gesture to spread happiness! I think that spreading happiness is the most generous thing you could do. Everyone is searching for happiness and if you’ve got it, it’s up to you to spread it! Below are videos and photos of my documentation of whistling to those people, spreading the happiness along.
- A family member
My youngest sister Elisabeth.
- An authority figure
My dad is my authority figure. We did so many takes of this video where we were laughing but when I laugh I can’t whistle lol so I asked dad to stop being so goofy so I could finish it thus him looking rather un-enthused. But for the record he was super happy when I was whistling….success!
- A team
I consider my hamsters a team. They pretty much have the same routines. I give them the same food and water and toys, and they work as a team to make me happy. So a team they are!
- Something nonhuman
A banana, of course.
- A stranger
This is Caroline met her the other day walking around the neighborhood.
- A professional
This is Heidi She is a professional scientist and works as a microbiologist. She is also my mom!
- Someone who doesn’t look like you
Kody of course. He is the best dog ever!!
- Someone who doesn’t live in the same town as you
Couldn’t record a video for this one but got an action shot of me mid whistle.
This is Chaz, and he lives in Brookline Massachusetts!
- A villain
MILK. As a person with lactose intolerance, milk is absolutely my worst enemy.
- A hero
My Grandmother. She passed away this past summer in July. She was and is my hero. She is also the one who taught me how to whistle. ❤
Below is a podcast I made describing my experience with the performance action, ATOM the Rapping Hamster is featured in it also.
