Katharina Hone, "Teaching diplomacy with Twitter?!" diplomacy.edu
Image from, with observation: The CIA’s first tweet was a “tweet heard round the world” as it attracted much media attention.
New information and communication technology (ICT) not only changes the practice of diplomacy, it also can, and should, influence how we teach diplomacy, and in particular public diplomacy. In June, I attended the annual conference of the British International Studies Association (BISA) and was inspired by a panel on Teaching with Twitter. I use the insights shared there and some of my own reflections to make the case for including Twitter in teaching public diplomacy.
