SHU journalism students took to the sports pitches last week to live tweet from Sheffield Varsity as part of their Writing the Message Online module.
Each student was placed in a team and given a match to cover. They were asked to do a live match report, post match interviews, vox pop with spectators and to talk to Varsity officials using just their mobile phones and the hashtag #wtmo.
The games covered were:
- Women’s Cricket
- Men’s Cricket 2
- Men’s Rugby Union 3
- Women’s Football 2
- Men’s Football 3
- Men’s Football 4
