A False Following is a self initiated final major project that explores the way in which I use the social media platform Twitter, the connections I make and the possible repercussions of amassing a false following. The book A False Following is a document of my own Twitter profile which aims to contextualise the numbers and people around me. This main book is supported by three supplements, the Hours of Crap series deconstruct and annotate segments of my Twitter feed in order to realise what is relevant.

A web platform was also created in order to bring immediate context to the viewer, the platform allows the user to see who they are connected to by retrieving information from Twitter, the aim of this is to cause the viewer to question the way in which they use social media.

The platform can be viewed here.
