Since the first season of Game of Thrones I gradually started to see everything a little bit differently. How much more interesting would life in Westeros have been if there was a little bit of modern social tech involved? I mean let’s think about it. How are you going to get the message to all the lords of the land that the King that sits on the throne has an illegitimate claim? Ravens? Seriously? All things considered, I guess that was the “tweet” equivalent in the show – using a bird to blast your small scroll of a message to a bunch of people at once.
Now the scrolls are just restricted to 140 characters. Just ask Stannis Baratheon.
So below I took a look at Season 5 thus far through the lens of the tech geek. How might these conversations have gone with some of that modern tech spin? Take a look at the gallery and see for yourself (13 photos).
