As part of the Friday Excellence classes which was exclusively done on Monday, Dec. 18, Al Maaref Instructor Ms. Marwa Osman invited MCFA students to a seminar about systematic tweeting during Twitter Storms which leads to a change in the national, regional and international public opinion over a specific issue.
Students were in for a treat to meet two of the leading personas behind a few of the most influential hashtags which trended over the past month.
Our guests were social media experts Mr. Taha Hussein and Mr. Jamal Cheaib.
Our students got acquainted with the NEW new media reporting by covering several points like:
1. What is a twitter storm?
2. What is a trending Hashtag and why is it important?
3. What is a twitter bank and how do we use it during twitter storms?
4. How to create and follow up a twitter storm group?
