Teaching twitter to California Watch team; away they go

The past two weeks have been social media school at California Watch, the new investigative reporting./data visualization projects from Center for Investigative Reporting, where I work as their web strategist. The reporting teams runs the gamut, skills wise–from ace reporters who avoid social media, to social media experts with Twitter followings the size of a small New England town. Goal of trainings: teach everyone basic skills, explain how this fits into their work life, get everyone online and using the new tools.

Ready, set, go.
