Why and How to Get Verified on Social Media in 2020

On Thursday, Twitter essentially shut down hundreds of verified users after several high-profile accounts were hacked to help stem the tide of the attack. Verified users across the platform were and are still unable to tweet or log into their accounts if they had changed – or attempted to change – their passwords within the past 30 days.  This has left many users wondering what the point of verification might be if prominent accounts from politicians like Barack Obama or corporate accounts like Apple could be hacked.

Writing Tips & Tricks for PR Pros

I don’t know exactly how many papers I wrote in college, but the filing cabinet packed with bursting folders of my graded projects is probably a good hint that it was a lot. I like to write, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised by just how much writing is involved in public relations every day. Not just press releases or articles, but emails, social media content, strategic plans, website copy – you name it! I’m glad I get to use my college-honed writing skills every day for my career. Writing doesn’t come naturally to everyone, though, which is why having a plan [...]
