With the Occupy Chicago protests in full effect at Jackson and LaSalle last night, the Tribune sent one of their own to the scene for coverage. Not a columnist, or photographer, or WGN anchor (though surely they were there). I'm talking about Erin Meyer, a Trib reporter whose objective yesterday was to live-tweet the event. When I found her yesterday, she was at 20 followers. As of this posting at 10 a.m. October 11, she is at 212. Good work Tribune. Eye On Chi's social media e-words would surely approve.
Follow Erin Meyer on twitter, where, I'm guessing, she will continue her protest tweet coverage.
