University Adds Mandatory Course on Twitter

Austrailia’s Griffith University has added a mandatory course on Twitter to their journalism student’s curriculum. Though it may sound like a joke, the school feels that some young writer’s “tweets” are not as in-depth as they could be. Referring to the journalistic role of Twitter in matters like the recent Iranian protests, the University officials believe that up-and-coming journalists need training in the art of brevity while conveying news.
