I would stand by the teletype machine and watch as the story I just called in was typed/distributed to all of AP’s members. Eventually that story was broadcast or published. To me Twitter does the same thing: it allows me to share/broadcast relevant stories/resources about media and media literacy with those who are most interested. As far as Twitter’s use in education, as a professional development trainer, I use it with English language arts teachers to demonstrate paraphrasing, headline writing and more.”
