Project 1: Find Your Sources on Twitter (Beat Reporters)

May 14, 2012

Welcome, beat reporters. This post will give an overview of the training and explain Project 1.

Our first project is to dig around the web and compile a Twitter list of at least 20 sources and influencers related to your beat. Then write down three relevant hashtags.

What do I mean by that?

Watch the video below where I explain all of that. The video also outlines our plans and goals for the beat reporter track.

When you finish the assignment

E-mail the following to myself and Ki by Thursday night.

  • The link to your Twitter list.
  • Three hashtags relevant to your local community.
