Storytelling is as old as humankind. Long before there was the written word, humans told their stories through spoken word, songs and drawings. It was how we passed on our history, our culture and our shared experiences. We’ve progressed technologically from the original cave drawings and humanity finds new ways everyday to use technology to tell our stories. A BETTER PEACE welcomes Sasha Maggio to the virtual studio to share her medium of choice, Twitter, where she is telling the stories of the U.S. Army. Sasha joins our Editor-in-Chief, Jacqueline Whitt, to discuss how she uses the long thread format to relay the history of the Army in a way that is enjoyable, engaging and sometimes amusing to an audience that may not have been previously interested.
But if you want to actually reach your broadest audience, you need to understand that the content that you’re putting out has to adapt to each platform, and you can use the same type of storytelling but you have to just adjust it for each.
Sasha Maggio is an Army contractor working at the Mission Command Training Program and works in the Scenario Design Division. She also tweets and her Twitter handle is @Mother_of_Tanks or you can find her website at www.motheroftanks.com
Jacqueline E. Whitt is an Associate Professor of Strategy at the U.S. Army War College and the Editor-in-Chief of WAR ROOM.
