Twitter plays a significant role in dissemination of information about Ukrainian protests (#euromaidan, #євромайдан). Many new users have joined Twitter in Ukraine during last three weeks of protests.
To provide better understanding to users on how to use Twitter effectively, my colleagues in Internews Ukraine conducted an educational session today (trainer – Yevgen Demchenko, FRI). The session was also streaming online. A special attention was paid to the issue how to avoid misleading information in Twitter.
Volodymyr Klitschko and his fiancee, American actress Hayden Panettiere, address protesters on the Independence Square (Maidan Nezalezhnosti) in Kiev, Ukraine. They came to support protesters’ aspirations for European future of Ukraine.
Sayeth Hayden: “Nothing compares to the undeniably deep souls of the Ukrainian people.”
Note: Hundreds of thousands people came on streets in Kiev on December 1st to protest against police violence and government refusal to sign the EU Association agreement, a political and economical tool to bring Ukraine closer to European nations.
