The Transparency Series – Reporting on Twitter

November 23 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm EST

Presenter
Craig Silverman, BuzzFeed

Workshop Description
Twitter is not just a source of updates from friends and happenings in the local community. Instead, it is a dense network embedded with narratives of how the world is structured, including how information flows and spreads, both within and outside of communities. The platform is host to policy announcements from the President of the United States, and demonstrated in the previous election to be a hotbed of mis-/dis-information. Therefore, it is imperative that we, as journalists, know how to effectively question and interrogate the platform. This workshop will spend the day teaching students how to report on Twitter, understanding the network, individuals, communities, and how information propogates and trends.
