Leader’s Roundtable: Twitter: Philosophical Friend or Foe? (Hybrid)

January 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Bring your lunch and join Leader Dr. Nori Rost and members for an engaging round-table discussion on the issues of the day and recommended readings.

Today’s articles deal with the Twitter mechanisms that invite vulnerable, contextual posts and, with the same mechanisms, create the risk that what we post will be misquoted, taken out of context and used to crush us! The second article deals with a case of Twitter being part of the undoing of a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist’s reputation. Was it warranted? Or did Twitter betray this person? Let’s discuss! And while we’re at it, let’s discuss the philosophy of intimacy.

Twitter, the Intimacy Machine – The Raven Magazine

Ian Urbina on the Outlaw Ocean Music Project Scandal – New York Magazine
