Founder of technology and journalism blog 10,000 Words and now former Social Media Editor at The Washington Post will be heading to New York where he will fill the shoes of Creative Content Manager for Journalism at tech giant, Twitter.
In Luckie’s new role he will bridge journalism and social media by exploring ways journalists can elevate the way they use Twitter.
“I’ll be working with newsrooms to come up with creative uses of the platform, educating journalists on best practices, and serving as a voice for journalists within the company,” Luckie says.
Twitter has a number of areas of concentration under its media umbrella. They include entertainment, religion, politics, government and journalism.
“I plan to bring my experience as a digital journalist and social media enthusiast to bring some in the trenches of what journalists want and need from the social network,” Luckie says.
Luckie will officially begin June 25 at Twitter’s New York City office.Category: Featured, News | Tags: Creative Content Manager for Jounalism, journalism, mark luckie, social media, twitter
