Facebook is like Disco and Twitter is like Punk by @DrRebekkaKill

The fabulous Dr Rebekka Kill is Head of School, Art, Architecture and Design at Leeds Metropolitan University. She recently gave a talk at the Shift Happens conference, presenting a personal account of her obsession with both music and social media. The parallels between these two were explored whilst DJing in front of the presentation – amazing!
