There’s always something developing … on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc. The morning newspaper or the nightly TV newscasts are no longer the only sources of information. We will explore the ways journalists use social media to gather information, create conversation, and promote their work.
This class will be constantly adapting and changing. There is a syllabus with some structure, but we will operate in many ways like a working newsroom. We will adapt and develop much like the topic we are studying as the semester moves forward.
Examples this week…
This I did Monday night before the mudslides hit. #TimesUp conversation with @RWitherspoon, @shondarhimes@americaferrera, @TraceeEllisRoss, Natalie Portman, Kathleen Kennedy, and Nina Shaw. Hope you’ll watch tomorrow on @CBSSunday. pic.twitter.com/dc9BXO3MAm
