Presented at ONA18
September 12, 2018
More from this event →

A Knight Foundation analysis of interactions between Twitter’s black, feminist and Asian-American subcultures — and the news media that cover them — shows well-placed mistrust, cynical story mining and ambivalent engagement. We’ll unpack why this happens with an eye toward making news more representative and accurate.

This session is designed for:

  • Journalists covering underserved or difficult-to-reach communities
  • Organizations looking to improve engagement and build positive feedback loops
  • Anyone who wants to understand how communities develop and establish a voice in the online space
