Tweet- Tweet.

Twitter is  important . Its a tool in most peoples life. But it is especially important for the profession of a journalist. The social media platform not only provides a route to promote a story, it is a platform that also enables you to keep up to date with your sources.

This particular platform also allows you to find and capture your audiences’ reaction in real time¬†via their responses, plus you can keep them up-to date and provide them with a way to keep track of the stories.

Just like Facebook, twitter has a live stream function too, which is great for covering stories as they happen. ¬†The “moments” feature ¬†is perfect too with all of the breaking news ¬†gathered in one central place, updated live.

Basically, Twitter is life for a journalist and you can follow me @BithellTomCom

Facebook has revolutionised the way news stories can be reported and the way viewers can interact with whats going on in the world by introducing the “live” button.¬†

In todays society, reporting live has never been easier! With a click of a button, reporters can share whats happening via live stream and viewers can even interact straight from Facebook via the comments and emotion buttons. 

And it is all so straight forward! 


All you need to do is click the live button at the top left hand corner….
