So very true.
The Ultimate Tweet
Typing 140 characters and adding a link or photo is so 2010.
Too many news organizations merely toss web or broadcast content in a tweet.
Here’s an example of content created on mobile for mobile.
Great how-to. I took advantage of this at an ordination at a Catholic church.
I looked for opportunities when photos could tell the story. I shot three photos: of the candidates entering the church, when they prostrate themselves during the service and lastly, as they greeted family, friends and loved ones after the service. Beginning, middle and endI shot with the Camera+ app, editing them on the fly. I wrote out a script and recorded it using the Soundcloud app sitting in my car in the parking garage, uploaded it and put it out on social media.
Here’s my first attempt. Thanks for the tip.
Civilization is a stream with banks. The stream is sometimes filled with blood from people killing, stealing, shouting and doing things historians usually record, while on the banks, unnoticed, people build homes, make love, raise children, sing songs, write poetry.The story of civilization is the story of what happened on the banks.Historians are pessimists because they ignore the banks for the river. — Will Durant
My writing during these past 19 years has been all about the events on the banks of civilization. I am pleased I’ve been able to those stories in newspapers.
