Description

Twitter is leading a game-changing trend in digital diplomacy and global communications. Its open, real-time, 140-character platform is changing the way that policymakers communicate with civil society and accelerating diplomats’ ability to gather information and react to events. Twitter has been praised as a tool that will open the world to a global conversation and greater understanding. However, it has also been criticized as design that favors speed over analysis, aggression over reflection, and shock over depth. We welcome Colin Crowell, Vice President of Global Public Policy & Philanthropy at Twitter, to share his insights with The Fletcher School and Tufts community. This event will be hosted by Tisch College Dean Alan Solomont in ASEAN, on Wednesday, March 29th from 4:15 pm – 5:30 pm. This event is co-sponsored by the Tisch College of Civic Life. Reception to follow.
