We start this week’s lesson with some big news. Elon Musk has purchased Twitter ( https://www.nytimes.com/live/2022/04/25/business/elon-musk-twitter )for a mere 44 billion dollars. What this means for first amendment issues, Twitter users, and Donald Trump remains to be seen.Also in the news is the endless blood-spilling in Ukraine and the arrest of more journalists in Russia. President Zelensky, however, is continuing to make good use of social media to keep the world apprised of the situation and to win support and much needed help to his side.This week I want to focus on the importance of social media for all working journalists today. To this end, please read Chapter One (pages 1-22) from Professor Anthony Adornato’s book Mobile and Social Media Journalism (pdf attached below)If you have the time, I also am asking that you watch this superb documentary on Russian dissident Alexei Nalvany, who put social media to great use to expose Putin’s corruption and evilness. For his courage to speak truth to power, he was poisoned by Putin and is now lingering in jail in Siberia for at least another decade (or until the Russian people rise up — which let us hope they do).Here is a film trailer.
