Feb. 4: Tweet the news

Today’s class: We’ll talk about our upcoming Twitter Scavenger Hunt with journalism students at Lindenwood University, as well as your Tweet the News assignment photos. See “Twitter Scavenger Hunt” post for details.

Due today: Read the folder Social media tools for journalists and complete the Tweet the News assignment. You do not have to use a smartphone if you do not have one — you can use a digital camera & upload the photo.

  • Commit an act of journalism
  • Take a picture of something that is news
  • Post to Twitter with an explanation of why it’s news
  • Use #mpj2014
