Molloy Communications Department to live-tweet the 2014 Golden Globes
By Antohny Vela
*Professor Tom Kenny from the Molloy College Communications Department will be live-tweeting his thoughts about the 2014 Golden Globes show on Sunday, January 12 at 8 p.m. on NBC. This isn't the first time that the Molloy College Communications Department has lived tweeted an awards show.
"Yes, we have done this before. The SAG (Screen Actors Guild) Awards in January will mark our first year anniversary doing the second screen experience. Since then, we have live-tweeted for every major television and film award show including the Emmy's, Golden Globes, and the Academy Awards (Oscars)," said Kenny.
According to Kenny, there are several reasons why it's important to tweet live events. " The importance of tweeting live is to interact with our current audience (students, faculty, etc), gain new followers to our Twitter page, but most importantly keep the conversations we are having in the classroom with our students moving. Perspective students also gain insight into some of the topics we cover in class. For students in the new media major or traditional media, this also showcases how to use Twitter as a utility and tool. It allows our students to be able to tweet about content relating to their possible future careers and beginning their online brand," said Kenny.
