In addition to covering the institutional left and whatever protests and crazy antics they may be up to, my regular news beat consists largely of topics related to social media, hacking, hoaxes, leaks and technology related "stuff." (Not surprisingly, there is often some cross-over with those topics and the institutional left).
I find myself plucking out the best stories of the day - the fruits of my special news feeds, derived from my pre-configured custom searches - and tweeting those out to my followers on social media. Sometimes the stories are serious, sometimes they're about
crimes, sometimes they're bizarre, but mainly they're just interesting
for one reason or another.
