So this Thursday, May 6 at Busboys and Poets, I have the distinct pleasure of hosting an awesome panel of Washington, DC journalists to talk social media for the second installment of Twitch! Public Relations in the Age of Social Media. For talk two, PoliTwitch we’re hosting journalists who focus on political reporting, and I must tell you we’ve got some heavy hitters who you won’t want to miss. Haven’t gotten your ticket yet? Register here.
Our moderator will be Peter Cherukuri, the DC Bureau Manager of the Huffington Post-and the real media mogul in the room for the evening. I hear he’s going to be talking about some of the HuffPo’s newest social media endeavors which should be exciting. And perhaps even newsbreaking.
Patrick Gavin from Politico will also be on the panel. He’s a staff writer for Politico and editor of Politico’s new “On Media” blog, which you can ask him about in person. You can see him below interviewing David Gregory on the new Meet the Press set.
Roll Call’s Jackie Kucinich will also be at the table as well as the National Partnership for Women and Family Policy Manager Rachna Choudhry, and of course me, Amanda Miller Littlejohn and my husband Marc Littlejohn the organizers and hosts.
Here’s what we’re going to be talking about:
- how social media and new media technologies have transformed the way news is reported
- how political and advocacy issues make it to the top of the news heap
- how organizations are using social media to set themselves apart from their competitors and get news coverage
So bring your questions for these decision makers in the news business. You won’t want to miss this discussion.
