Tonight’s Debate Assignment

Hi multimediaites —

Don’t forget that you’re twittering tonight’s vice-presidential debate under #umassvp.   Remember, I want at least five (5) twitter entries.  As some of you found out for the last assignment, you can get caught up in the conversation and forget about the number of entries — that’s fine and I hope that’s how many of you end up viewing the assignment.

At the end of class, Cassie asked about what type of voice you should be using in these assignments.  So, yes, remember, you are always acting as a journalist.  Keep that in mind in how you phrase and comment on the debate.  Insight, analysis, questions, quotes — all good things to keep in mind when posting — especially because you may end up getting quoted on stories.  And, remember to read what others are saying and interact with them — this is interactivity!

Good luck,

Steve
