Descriptive Entry
Descriptive Entry
This accession consists of Twitter posts, known as tweets, using the hashtag #SIShowdown, as they existed on August 25, 2015. The hashtag was associated with the "Smithsonian Summer Showdown" web-based competition for which many of the museums, research centers, and zoo chose one "seriously amazing" item, experience, or piece of knowledge to be voted upon by the public. The competition ran between August 6 and August 24, 2015. Throughout the competition, many of the Smithsonian Institution's Twitter accounts were used to promote the competition and encourage votes for particular items. This accession includes both tweets from official Smithsonian accounts and tweets from other institutions and the general public. Materials are in electronic format.
