Students cover Varsity via Twitter

varsity hallam

SHU journalism students took to the sports pitches last week to live tweet from Sheffield Varsity as part of their first year Writing the Message Online module.

Each student was placed in a team and given a match to cover. They were asked to do a live match report, post match interviews, vox pop with spectators and to talk to Varsity officials using just their mobile phones and the hashtag #wtmo.

During the day they covered men’s and women’s football, cricket and rugby.

A full round-up of the tweets can be viewed at Storify.

The students also received feedback on their tweets by module leader Lily Canter. View the feedback here.
