Building Community in 140 Characters or Less

  • Feb 12, 2016
  • MIT Museum, Cambridge, MA

Over the past decade, social media has become news anchor, matchmaker, and replaced the water cooler as our gathering area. Increasingly, it is being used to share and connect stories of people who lack access or sufficient influence to traditional media. Join the MIT Museum as researchers and community leaders share how local issues can turn into national stories through Retweets, Likes and Shares. And, participate in a conversation about the way digital platforms are being used to introduce diverse voices and build communities.

The event is free and runs from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.
No RSVP required.
