NPR’s Corey Flintoff (with an assist from NPR’s social media guru Andy Carvin) discuss the uses of social media in reporting on the current crisis in Gaza. This is great reading for anyone who’s still trying to figure out how social media are working their way into mainstream reporting. And it’s not just journalists using social media, it’s governments as well.
Once you’re convinced, get yourself on Twitter, and add @standupkid. (Andy Carvin’s also there @acarvin)
