Depths of Wikipedia and Fashionlover4 talk about their process, credentials and musings when creating online content for social media.

Depths of Wikipedia
Bored during the pandemic Annie Rauwerda started her Instagram page “Depths of Wikipedia” in April of 2020. Although originally intended to share strange, surprising, and interesting facts from the English Wikipedia among friends, the page has grown over a million followers. Rauwerda made a Twitter page, where the Wikipedia screenshots get posted as well. On TikTok she uses the @depthsofwikipedia handle to post personal stories, facts about Wikipedia, comedic videos and updates on her perpetual stew te postenInstagram Twitter/X TikTok

Michael, aka Fashionlover4 or @hotfashiontakes, has an interest in fashion, but is also critical of the fashion world. On TikTok he posts short and snappy videos like tier lists, and explainer videos on topics like a specific garment of the history of a brand or designer. On his YouTube channel he posts longer video-essays that go more in-depth and visually often have a livestreaming-like composition where a green screen video of Michael is placed in a bottom corner on top of archival video footage. TikTok YouTube Instagram Patreon Blog
