Rosenberg visits 360NN by Kyle Gehler

Tweet by Kyle Gehler(@KyleGehler)

My class was lucky enough to have @ByRosenberg talk with us earlier this week about a few social media tips. #360NN

It is beneficial to use Twitter regularly. Your followers can usually tell if you are here just because you are required to post a certain number of times compared to those that are here beyond the requirement. #360NN 1/10

Being on beyond just the bare minimum is important because you can find your voice on here. Rosenberg mentioned that more people likely know him form his tweets than his work at the Seattle Times. #360NN 2/10

It is also important to not get too invested on Twitter. It is easy to go down a rabbit hole on here, but not nearly as easy to get out of it. #360NN 3/10

Rosenberg talked about how difficult it is to determine what is true in this era. It is crucial to assume it is false rather than assuming it is a fact. It is easier to hold off and wait until you are positive than it is to backtrack after a mistake. #360NN 4/10

If you do happen to make a mistake, Rosenberg recommends taking a screenshot of the incorrect tweet before deleting it and reposting the screenshot with the corrected information. #360NN 5/10

This is the easiest way to stop the spread of misinformation, while still getting the correct info out. I agree that this is the best way to handle this situation compared to responding to the original tweet because most people just RT and move on. #360NN 6/10

He believes that Retweets should be handled the same way as your own original tweets. To go along with this, he does not recommend having a personal account separate from a professional account. You should be held responsible for your posts. #360NN 7/10

It is sometimes difficult to know the line is for a tweet. The line has gotten quite a bit blurrier since the 2016 election. For example, the next tweet from @ByRosenberg would have likely been seen as crossing the line two years ago, but now is just adding context. #360NN 8/10

This tweet would have been in question a couple years ago, but now seems to be entirely fair and adding important context. #360NN 9/10

His most important point was to have fun and don't be afraid to take some breaks from Twitter. Advice that I could not agree with more. I need to apply that way more than I do. #360NN 10/10
