Lock the doors and hide your children. I am going to participate in an ASNE Twitter chat at 2 p.m. tomorrow. The topic: What would ex-editors do differently. (Besides laying off people, I assume.)
Normally, I don’t care for Twitter chats. I find them hard to follow, but that’s because I have a wandering attention span (read, short). This one will be different; I’ll be in it. if you’re in journalism, this is an interesting topic. I know my answers will surprise a lot of my former employees at the News & Record. For instance, “Whose big idea was it to make Monday and Tuesday papers so thin? I should’ve fired that guy.”
Tune in. If you’re not on Twitter, you’re behind the times. Time to catch up. You can follow at #ASNEchat.
