TWOOPS! Did your favorite politician's fingers skitter a little too quickly across that keyboard? Anthony Weiner isn't the only politician who's learned the perils of social media. Now that elected officials are using new methods to communicate with voters, it can be revealing to see what they wished they hadn't said. Spend an hour learning about the Sunlight Foundation's Politwoops, a tool that tracks deleted tweets by politicians. Learn how you can use it to improve coverage of your beat (and have a few laughs in the process). Registration is $5 NPC members; $10 public. http://www.press.org/events/intro-sunlight-foundations-politwoops
