When following somebody is considered good! #10
If you have been alive in the past 3 or so years, I’m sure you have heard of twitter. It’s such a great way to keep “in the know” and not just about celebrities, but also with friends, colleagues in the professional world, sports teams, media outlets, stores, restaurants…you name it, everyone is on twitter.
In my classroom we have jumped on the social media bandwagon and have been tweeting for a little over a year. However, we’ve really started to utilize this new communication tool throughout this school year. Those of you on twitter can follow @ehighjournalism and get information about school events, updates on news we’ve posted on our website and also follow our live tweets of games. So far we have a little over 100 followers, but we hope to grow that even more and use twitter to hold contests for our followers.
It really is a new world in journalism…but it is exciting to work with such a dynamic and changing subject and what a fun way to connect to our readers and even family members and friends of our students!
