Twitter Scavenger Hunt: getting comfortable with social media

Modern journalism and Twitter go hand-in-hand. Students entering the new journalism world in 2015 need to feel comfortable quickly and efficiently using Twitter to provide man on the street style reporting and connect to readers. WSU students studying producing online news were thrown into the world of social media with a Twitter scavenger hunt, forcing them to quickly get comfortable with the app, connect to other students and faculty, and get past the awkwardness of talking to a total stranger. Not only did we learn where students were studying, and snagging a bite to eat, we learned where (or if) they’re reading news, and how they use social media to connect to the world around them.
