Today: Boost your live coverage skills at “Tweet It Now” workshop

Gone are the days of filing your story at day’s end. Today’s journalists are responsible for producing online content in addition to their print or broadcast work. And today’s savviest journalists go a step further – filing stories as they happen via Twitter.

Learn how you can improve your “live coverage” skills at SPJ’s “Tweet It Now: Real-time Reporting via Twitter” workshop on Thursday, Feb. 16.

Speakers will include Voice of San Diego education writer-turned-Los Angeles Times journalist Emily Alpert (@emilyschoolsyou), San Diego CityBeat’s Dave Maass (@DaveMaass), KPBS web producer Claire Trageser(@clairetrageser), and U-T San Diego reporter Wendy Fry (@WendyFry). U-T San Diego reporter Matthew Hall (@SDuncovered) will moderate the program.

Learn the benefits of using Twitter coverage in your reporting, and take home skills you can use when covering meetings, elections, court proceedings, sports events, protests, disaster scenes and more.
