Abstract [en]

One of the most common social media platforms of today is Twitter, an open

community where content easily could be spread by sharing so called tweets and

where the relationship between users is not constrained by accepting the other user.

This report discusses the complexity in merging social media and dance by studying a

project which used crowdsourcing through Twitter to collect choreographic ideas for

a new ballet piece.

In order to examine Twitter as a tool in a creative process, a questionnaire was sent to

Twitter users and email interviews were held with those responsible for the project of

study. The questionnaire showed that most of the Twitter users enjoyed creating and

being part of a creative process. However, some of those with an occupation within

the dance world voiced concerns about untrained people creating choreography.

From the interviews it was found that a lot of thought had to be put into the structure

of the project and that the project’s main motivator was to inspire and create with the

help of people around the world.

It was found in the research that Twitter is a suiting platform for a crowdsourced

project since a large and varying group of participants is reached. Twitter allows for

the Twitter users to participate regardless of location or occupation as well as

bringing good publicity to the dance world.

Abstract [sv]

Twitter är idag en av de största plattformarna inom sociala medier. Plattformen är ett

öppet forum där användare enkelt kan sprida material genom så kallade tweets och

där användarnas relationer inte kräver att den ena parten accepterar den andre.

Denna rapport behandlar komplexiteten i att kombinera sociala medier och dans,

genom studien av ett projekt som använde sig av crowdsourcing via Twitter för att

samla idéer till ett nytt balettverk.

För att kunna utvärdera Twitter som ett verktyg i en kreativ process skickades ett

frågeformulär ut till twitteranvändare. Dessutom hölls e-mailintervjuer med dem som

var ansvariga för projektet. Formuläret visade att de flesta twitteranvändarna

uppskattade att få skapa och ta del av en kreativ process. Dock fanns det negativa

åsikter bland användare inom dansvärlden, att otränade personer inte bör

koreografera. E-mailintervjuerna visade att mycket tanke hade lagts på strukturen av

projektet och att drivkrafterna för att driva ett sådant projekt var att inspirera och

skapa tillsammans med hela världen.

Genom undersökningen visade det sig att Twitter är en passande plattform för ett

crowdsourcat projekt eftersom ett stort antal deltagare kan nås oberoende av var de

befinner sig samtidigt som det medför bra publicitet för dansvärlden.
