Austrailia’s Griffith University has added a Twitter component to an existing course which teaches basic news gathering and writing skills. Referring to the journalistic role of Twitter in matters like the recent Iranian protests, the school believes that up-and-coming journalists can benefit from training in the micro-blogging service to help them gather information and write stories. (It was originally reported that the course was only on Twitter, and mandatory.)
