University adds Twitter class to journalism course


One journalism school is getting into the social media act.

In a recent move, Australia’s Griffith University made Twitter classes compulsory for journo students.

The surprise was in the reaction by some students weren’t convinced that there was much use in learning about social media in a formal education curriculum. Oddly, some of these journalism students even had no idea what Twitter was.

Huh?
