Ambassadors throughout history have juggled the competing imperatives of communicating with their host nation’s government, its people, and the leadership of the foreign government they represent. Social media has made this triangulation far more transparent and simultaneous, for better and worse. In recent years, diplomats such as the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Christopher Landau have taken to Twitter to conduct personalized, immediate digital diplomacy—navigating complex international relationships along the way.
Join Future Tense and Convergence Lab in a conversation with Ambassador Landau on the hows and whys of ambassadorial tweeting. The event will be in English with simultaneous interpretation into Spanish.
