Some Journalist feel as though Twitter is a burden in their work load.
Magazine editor from Los Angeles, Ann Friedman, writes to tell journalist when and when not to use a Twitter account in an article for the Columbia Journalism Review.
Friedman says, that one might want to “get comfortable with 140-character communication if” they write about media or pop culture. She also tells readers that they may want to stay away from Twitter if they have a secure job at a large print publication and don’t need/want others seeing their work.
Friedman is not sure Twitter will be important to journalist in the future, but advises to start practicing with it now.
I agree with Friedman because we do not know where the future is going to take us as far as media, but if I had to guess, it will be a valuable tool in story telling so we should begin to practice with it now.
I’m Alexis but commonly referred to as “Lex.” I am from Severn, Maryland. It is conveniently located between Baltimore and D.C. I am a Junior here at Towson majoring in Mass Communication with a focus in Journalism and minoring in Women Studies.
I am always curious about the world that I live in. I love traveling and recently completed a month backpacking trip through Europe. I am very into social movements and politics. I also enjoy listening to music, and you can probably find me listening to pretty much any genre of music. I also loving indulging in the latest memes that surface my social media timelines. Lately, I have found a new interest in fashion, but my bank account feels otherwise.
I value many different things in life, but most importantly, the ability to “do.” By that I mean, my family has made it nothing but possible to do anything I want to do in life. They have laid a foundation of opportunity for me, and I am incredibly grateful for that.
I am not completely sure what I want to do in the future but, I want to continue learning every day in every way.
