DFM chat on death, social media and journalism

Journalists, members of Digital First Media and pretty much everyone else who wants to - are going to be taking part on the weekly Twitter chat at noon, Eastern Time.
Today we're talking about how to deal with sensitive issues on social media: Should journalists tweet from funerals and public memorials? How do you approach potential witnesses and victims who have been shaken by a news event? How do you deal with public Facebook photos from victims?
The live feed is posted below. You can also check out past chats over here
