David Muir Periscopes Graduation

By Chris Ariens 

At Friday’s graduation ceremony at Northeastern University, commencement speaker David Muir took to the newest online platform to show how social media is changing traditional media. According to the Boston Globe write-up on the graudation:

Muir told graduates that they are all reporters now, “interconnected in extraordinary ways. It’s a two-way conversation,” he said. “We are just a tweet away from each other.” Muir also said that because he “doesn’t like to break a story last,” he went on Twitter and posted a link to video on Periscope, and then broadcast the graduating class as they erupted in cheers: “LIVE on #Periscope: Here they come. @northeastern class of 2015!”

Here’s a round-up of all the tvnewsers giving commencement addresses this year.
