Wouldn't stop picking at it

Blogging and tweeting live

I’m not one to use the word *exciting* very often, but it’s the best way to describe my whole experience at CBC Homerun.

The constant ebb and flow of journalists and producers, the on-the-fly decisions about what’s coming next, getting text messages to the host, the green and red equipment lights… my senses have been on overload all afternoon, but it’s been an intensely satisfying experience to watch media – social and otherwise – in action.

Twitter and Facebook have definitely become an integral part of the news-making process. When I first appeared on CBC Daybreak well over a year ago, I had to explain what Twitter was, how it worked and how to get started. They were already using their Twitter account, but they were still exploring how to integrate it into their process.

It was amazing to watch. Thanks to CBC Homerun for the opportunity!

    hey Adriana thanks so much for coming in today. I learned a lot from our conversations and had a couple of people tell me they enjoyed it as well. It was also nice to reconnect with Miss Julie 🙂 BTW I am sorry if I called you palancO – you’ll have to come again so I can rectify. I like your blog and the pictures you took are beautiful….until next time, thanks again.

    I loved the experience – thanks so much for letting me in on the fun! You have a great show – the team is amazing – and listening to it at home will never quite be the same.
    Hear you soon!
