Lessons from Black Twitter: Inclusive Reporting in Diverse Communities
September 12, 2018
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
