Twitter for Journalists Workshop Thursday, Nov. 15

Join the Virginia Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (@SPJVA) at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15 for a hands-on Twitter workshop with Fredericksburg city reporter and SPJVA board member Robyn Sidersky (@fxbgcitybeat).

Learn the ins and outs of using Twitter in your day-to-day reporting. We’ll cover a range of topics, from the basics of how to sign up for an account and picking a name to more advanced use such as using search, crowdsourcing and how to find the most active Tweeters in your community. Feel free to bring your computer/iPad/smartphone and we’ll give you hands-on help and answer questions.

 The workshop will be held in the Community Room at The Free Lance-Star, 616 Amelia St. in Fredericksburg.

Dinner will be provided, but please RSVP to virginiaprospj@gmail.com so that we know how much to order!
