CMC Blogging session – Twitter – some things to readPosted: July 4, 2011
Paul Bradshaw's Online Journalism Blog has a really useful guide to Twitter for journalists. It's quite old now but still good. For something more up to date, Paul also posts new links about Twitter via delicious (another social media service we'll look at later).
Later on in the class we'll look more at writing tweets and how to do it effectively. Jay Rosen has developed an interesting approach to different types of tweets - we'll look at that today, and perhaps pull out some of the best bits of Roy Peter Clark's long list of tips on how to write short pieces.
