On January 21st, 2017, thousands of demonstrators rallied in Women’s Marches around the globe. Many of them were advocating for LGBTQ rights, environmental justice and reproductive freedom.
During the time, I was a social editor for USC Annenberg Media, a student-run news organization at the University of Southern California. We sent reporters to D.C. and Los Angeles to cover the demonstrations.
For the entirety of the Women’s March on Washington and Los Angeles, I operated USC Annenberg Media’s Twitter account. From Los Angeles, I communicated with reporters to in the field to get their reporting on social. I retweeted comprehensive and visually compelling posts while also adding context to the reporting using quote tweets.
Below, you will find USC Annenberg Media’s Twitter stream from the day of the march. Everything you see from @AnnenbergMedia was either written or retweeted by myself. I believe the Twitter thread illustrates my strengths as a news writer, content curator and manager.
Note: “Quoted” tweets on Medium do not generate linked images below them like they do on Twitter. Instead, Medium shows the URL of the tweet being quoted.
