ICFJ Anywhere [1] is an online source of high-quality journalism courses taught by seasoned professionals. Journalists worldwide who are interested in learning how to optimize their use of Twitter as a professional tool can attend a free webinar on November 18, 2015.

The webinar will highlight best Twitter practices and provide examples of the potential hazards of Twitter. In an hour-long session, ICFJ Knight International Journalism Fellow Chris Roper [2] will discuss Twitter’s capacity to reinvent journalism for media companies, and how this will affect their editorial and business sides.

Mr. Roper is a veteran digital strategist with more than 15 years of experience in different newsrooms. He most recently held the position of editor-in-chief at the South African newspaper, Mail & Guardian [3].

Participants can interact with Mr. Roper and other participants in a question-and-answer format by sending in questions via YouTube chat or this Twitter hashtag: #icfjdigital [4].

The webinar will be hosted through a Google+ Hangout which will be created on the day of the event. Anyone can join the webinar at 10 a.m. EST (3 p.m. UTC) on November 18, 2015, via this link: https://plus.google.com/+IcfjOrg/posts [5]
