Online media outlets join forces to create Ukraine hashtag

IJNet | May 16, 2014

A new hashtag for reporting the crisis in Ukraine, the ethics of curating citizen video, Glenn Greenwald's initial contact with Edward Snowden and more are found in this week's Digital Media Mash Up, produced by the Center for International Media Assistance.

Here are IJNet's picks from this week's stories:

Welcome to #UkraineDesk

Starting today, leading digital media organizations Mashable, Digg, Mother Jones, Quartz, Breaking News Online and VICE News will be tagging tweets about the ongoing crisis in Ukraine with #UkraineDesk. (Vice, 5/13)

The ethics of curating citizen video

For two years, Witness has curated citizen videos on the Human Rights Channel on YouTube, and before YouTube, on The Hub. (Witness, 5/13)

Glenn Greenwald: how I met Edward Snowden

This essay is a shortened and adapted version of Chapter 1 of Glenn Greenwald's new book, No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the US Security State. (Mother Jones, 5/13)
