Intro to Twitter and Tweeting (+ handouts)
Puzzling that Twitter has been around for seven years, I have been a fan since 2008, and I still do not have a handy Twitter 101 reference guide. A quick Google search and appeal to my network found many presentation slides, but no handouts related to the art of Twitter. So I made my own. Twitter has great resources, so I was able to edit content and remove links to pull something together. Nothing fancy as of yet, but if you need something in a pinch to introduce a new colleague to Twitter, enjoy!
Useful guide to using Twitter during events from high school journalism teacher, Sarah Nichols.

Media Wisdom of 15-year olds
Morgan Stanley’s European media folks asked their 15-year old intern, Matthew Robson, to share his perspective on the media consumption of his peers and published the resulting paper. Although not data driven or full of new insights, the report does confirm a lot about the listening, viewing, and reading habits of the teenage audience. Texting wins out over Twitter, Facebook is still tops, and no one ever picks up a newspaper. Ever.
