Ninety-nine tweets about #LiteracyOfTheGlitch: a #LessonPlan on the potentials of failure, the unforeseen & the errant.

Abstract
Literacy of the Glitch is a website that examines the glitch and the potential it presents in terms of a learning experience related to new media and some of the practices associated with them. It consists of seven Glitch Portraits, all crafted out of Animated GIFs, each touching upon different but interrelated aspects of the glitch. Drawing on notions from Arts-Based Educational Research, Glitch Studies, Actor Network Theory, Object Oriented Ontology, Radical Cartography and practices associated with Remix, Net Art and Internet Visual Culture, Literacy of the Glitch re-frames failure as a conceptual vehicle capable of interrogating social and technological conventions through aesthetic forms.
