DFM chat on breaking news ethics

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 ethical concerns during breaking news situations. Should you tweet from the police scanner? (I MEAN, NO. C'MON); So how do properly live-tweet curate and aggregate an event if you're not there? What are the necessary verification steps? How do you correct mistakes? How do you go about rumors? As always, there will be #realtalk.

You can check out past chats over here. If you use Tweetchat you don't have to type the hashtag.

If you want to chime in, post a comment in the container or a tweet with the hashtag "#dfmchat" so it can automatically appear below.
