ST. LOUIS– Even though I haven’t yet seen his performance in the new Page One film, Brian Stelter will be making an appearance Wednesday here at the AEJMC Annual Conference. So I’ll at least get to hear the New York Times media reporter in person.
You may remember earlier this summer I did an analysis of Stelter’s tweets during the Joplin, MO tornado.
On Wednesday, he talks about the “Impact of Social Media on Crisis Coverage and Crisis Management During a Natural Disaster.” The 1:30 p.m. session occurs exactly 24 hours before I lead a session on the teaching aspect of extreme weather.
In an interview published by Dailyactor.com last month, Stelter said Twitter is:
- An early warning system for breaking news
- A tool for interacting with readers
- A great way to promote and improve our work.
