Abstract

Advances in technology and communication have brought many changes in human life. Humans have transformed from a real-life civilization to a virtual-life civilization using various social media to communicate with each other. This research was conducted to describe how one of the social media, namely Twitter, can bring various benefits in facilitating the learning of written English, especially through the Role Playing community. By involving learners aged from 15 to 25 years, this study was conducted using a qualitative research design with descriptive analysis. The results revealed that the Role Playing community has provided an interesting and enjoyable experience for learners in learning written English. Furthermore, the Role Playing community has also facilitated learners to be more expressive and explorative in role playing or playing someone they really admire.
