Live weekly Twitter chat #SPJchat starts tonight

Want to chat live with prominent journalists and leaders in our industry?

SPJ has just the thing: #SPJchat.

SPJ is launching a new weekly live Twitter chat on hot topics in journalism. It’s called #SPJchat, and it’s slated to take place at 8 p.m. Eastern/7 p.m. Central each Thursday, starting tonight.

#SPJchat is being coordinated by Mike Reilley, the man behind SPJ’s Journalist Toolbox site and adviser to the SPJ chapter at DePaul University. (We’re also welcoming Mike as a member of the Digital Media Committee.)

If you’re totally new to live Twitter chats, Mike has posted a step-by-step primer at this link.

The first #SPJchat sounds like it’s going to be great. The topic will be “Online Storytelling and Best Practices,” and the guest are slated to be:
* Mark Briggs, author of Journalism 2.0
* Mark Luckie, Washington Post national innovations editor, author of The Digital Journalist’s Handbook and founder of the 10000words Blog
* Mandy Jenkins, social media producer at TBD.com

And next week’s topic is slated to be “Copy Editing and Social Media.”

So follow @spjchat on Twitter for more updates, and we’ll see you at #SPJchat!
