You are what you tweet

Join our panel-led discussion in a conversation about journalists and how they create, produce and manage their “online brands.” From time management to ethical issues around what our jobs are now and are becoming, we’ll talk about the best practices for working the social streams. From creating a following to how and why our roles have morphed from “objective” reporters to promoters of our work, “You are what you Tweet” hopes to move forward the discussion around navigating and balancing your journalism through your “brand.”

Kirk Lapointe, Managing Editor, Vancouver Sun // @kirklapointe
