Twittering Meet the Press on MLK, Jr.

Sunday, April 6th, 2008

Why Tuesday? Board member Andrew Young appeared on Meet the Press this morning with Michael Eric Dyson and Tom Brokaw to discuss the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 40 years after his assassination. I followed along, as I did with Senator Bill Nelson on Meet the Press last Sunday, tweet-by-tweet.


Those are the final three tweets I posted. For the full live-tweet of Ambassador Young’s appearance, and to follow along with our efforts, subscribe to our Twitter feed.
