TWITTER CHAT: Reddit For Journalists
Join SPJ Digital March 21, 2016 at 8 PM (Eastern Standard Time) for an hour-long Twitter chat about how journalists can use Reddit to enhance their audience, story arsenal and sources.
Reddit is the most valuable social media network for some journalists and the most frustrating for others. The difference lies in knowing how you make the discussions, sub-reddits and community work with you rather than against you.

And bring both your questions about Reddit and your comments on the experience you have with the network.
This chat will also be a great way to introduce your colleagues to the SPJ Digital Community (and SPJ as a whole) so help us get the word out! It’s going to be a lively conversation and the knowledge you gain can help you use Reddit to gain sources — and use Reddit to gain more readers for your stories.
It’s simple and easy to take part: Just use the hashtag #SPJDigiChat on your message to join the conversation.
