Tweet About Your Favorite Teacher for $50 Off a Mediabistro Course

By Devon Glenn 

Just because you’re not in school anymore, doesn’t mean you can’t learn new things. Our parent site mediabistro has announced its fall lineup of enrichment courses for media pros. To celebrate, they’re asking the Twitter community to thank the teachers who have made a difference in their lives.

Between now and August 24, everyone who sends a tweet to @mediabistro and and uses the #teacherstory hashtag between will get a $50 credit toward the course of their choice. The top 5 tweets will earn a $100 credit. One winner will receive a free mediabistro course. They’ll let you know via direct message if you’ve won.

The classes are for media professionals of all levels who are looking to brush up on their skills. Some are hosted at our headquarters in New York City, while others are online. If you want to learn more about social media, try one of these:
