Twitter has become a powerful force for reporters (and the public) when reporting the news, specifically breaking news. Our panel has been researching some of the biggest recent news stories that have been positively and negatively impacted by the use of Twitter. Stories include the Boston bombings, Sandy Hook shooting in CT and Hurricane Sandy. We’ll discuss legal ramifications of misreporting and also offer exercises for educators to teach students how to use twitter responsibly.
