Live Tweet Wednesday’s Chats
- First up on Wednesday will be Mike Castellucci (@MikeCastellucci). He’s a real innovator when it comes to the use of mobile devices for storytelling. He created series of half-hour TV specials that are shot using only an iPhone. He’s won an Edward R. Murrow Award and several Emmys for the series.
- Then we’ll chat with IC journalism alumna Christine Loman (@ChristineLoman), who manages social media at The Washington Post.
