COVID-19: Youths Digest Organizes Digital Workshop For Campus Journalists
The Youths Digest, in partnership with the Committee, to Protect Journalists (CPJ) is set to organize a training programme for young journalists on digital security on Twitter.
This is coming as Nigeria and other countries of the world continue to combat the Coronavirus outbreak.
The tweet chat, which will occur concurrently on the online newspaper and CPJ’s Twitter pages — @youthsdigest and @CPJAfrica — will be anchored by CPJ’s Senior Africa Program Researcher, Jonathan Rozen.
Youths Digest, on its twitter page, said the training is a ‘safety advisory session on digital security issues’ for journalists and media outlets who are required to work during the coronavirus outbreak.
Youth digest stressed, “Journalists who are reporting on the spread of COVID-19 are at risk of being exposed to malware and scams, as criminals target people with misinformation and sophisticated phishing campaigns linked to the virus.”
