Live-tweeting is way to share your meeting coverage with a broader social audience in real time.
In this one hour training, we’ll discuss assignment preparation, how to document a meeting effectively via Twitter, and technical tips that can literally make or break your live-tweet thread.
Join us if you want to:
- Do more effective pre-meeting web research
- Practice writing quickly and concisely
- Explore social media as a platform for civic dialogue
- Make your application(s) for assignments more versatile
Prior experience with Twitter is not necessary, though we do recommend that beginners watch our Intro to Twitter video and create a public Twitter account prior to the start of the training (come early for help with set up). You will need a laptop or mobile device for this training.
At the end of the training, you will have an opportunity to take a quiz and earn our Twitter badge. While not required to apply for live tweeting assignments, the badge indicates to us that you are familiar with our expectations for live-tweeting assignments.
