Duke Faculty and Students Will Live Tweet During Obama’s Speech Thursday
Durham, NC - Several Duke faculty and students will participate in a live Twitter chat during President Barack Obama's speech Thursday night.
The speech is scheduled to begin after 10 p.m. ET.
Many of the same participants live tweeted during Republican nominee Mitt Romney's acceptance speech last week.
Faculty include Ken Rogerson, David Schanzer and Don Taylor of the Sanford School of Public Policy; psychology professor Gary Bennett; black church studies professor J. Kameron Carter; religion professor Ebrahim Moosa and English professor Maurice Wallace.
Bruce Jentleson, a professor of public policy and political science at Sanford who is an adviser in the Obama campaign, will live tweet from the convention in Charlotte.
Behavioral economics doctoral student Troy Campbell and undergraduate students Chloe Rockow, Ryan Boone, Thomas Jun Hong, Jordan DeLoatch and Maggie Spini will also tweet. DeLoatch and Spini are members of the Duke Democrats. Rockow is deputy vice-chair of the Duke College Republicans. Boone and Hong are members of the conservative Alexander Hamilton Society.
The chat will be a "public classroom" and tweeters will offer scholarly analysis and commentary in real time. Members of the Duke community are welcome to join the Twitter chat using the hashtags #DukeChat and #DNC2012 with these rules in mind.
