Media Literacy Amidst the Fog of War

Live "Reporting" in Twitter Spaces

International volunteer teams of Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) experts are producing 24/7 social media information streams that inform on war developments in realtime and debunk Russian and Ukrainian disinformation and misinformation. The channels provide in-depth context and expert insights and are speedier than mainstream news organizations. They have attracted audiences that include lawmakers, military professionals and journalists.  But their editorial policies are a work in progress. This webinar will focus on the case study of  "Russia Invasion of Ukraine: Walter Report" on Twitter Spaces as a resource for media literacy educators.
