GlobalPost recently introduced, “A Friday in…”
…GlobalPost’s Twitter feed will showcase the voices and personal experiences of these correspondents. In a project called “A Friday In …,” a different correspondent based internationally will take over the @GlobalPost account and tweet about his or her travels and daily activities.
In the interview, Hanna, who spent two years reporting from India before landing at GlobalPost, takes us behind the website’s social media curtain. Topics discussed include: how @Sweden inspired GlobalPost’s approach, what it means to cover global breaking news, the importance of having a conversational tone on Twitter (even for a brand!), and more.
- Storify of “A Friday in Bangkok” (great photos!)
- Storify of “A Friday in Cairo” (could also be titled, “How to engage tweeps while covering a protest”)
- New York Times’ coverage of @Sweden and a piece on the controversial Jew comments
- #DearMrPresident videos on GlobalPost’s YouTube channel
GlobalPost wants to hear from you! Do you like their Twitter series? Have ideas for future coverage? Leave a comment for Hanna!
