GIJC23 – Investigating Social Media: Telegram, Twitter, & WhatsApp

This workshop might just emerge as the one that changes your life as a watchdog journalist. Misinformation and disinformation on “closed” social media networks — such as WhatsApp and Telegram – have already had devastating consequences for democratic processes in places like India, Nigeria, Russia, and Brazil. At first glance, some platforms may seem impenetrable, while others are becoming harder to access. But there remain ways in — and we’ll show you how. This session features three of the world’s leading experts on how to dig deeply into this supposedly closed world – and to do it ethically, and without cost.
