(906) Tips and tricks using digital journalism tools for newsgathering

A session at Mozilla Festival 2012

Saturday 10th November, 2012

10:00am to 11:00am (GMT)

Journalists and those interested in reporting will learn how to use digital journalism tools for newsgathering.

We will take five news stories and use different tools to track down potential sources and verify facts. For example, we may want to find tweets originating in Benghazi the previous day, build a map of tweets sent with a particular hashtag from a given location, and we can then seek to verify images shared on social media.
