Episode 5: Breaking News Online With Weed Dude
Michael Rusch, aka: @weeddude, is one of the best in the business at breaking news online. Just take a look at his @mentions on Twitter and you’ll find journalists of all stripes, from the AP to BuzzFeed, retweeting his content to their followers. On The Program caught up with Weed Dude on location in Bushwick, to talk about his Twitter handle and approach to breaking news. Take a listen and let us know what you think.
In this week’s podcast, I chat with @Weeddude about breaking news online. Listen in to hear his take on the science behind it (and also how he ended up with the @weeddude handle).
@Weeddude’s the man. Recommended listening.
