It all began with one tweet: how coverage of Dev’s new song, “Crazy Talk,” gave my blog traffic

As the Assistant Arts and Entertainment Editor of The Whit, I was asked to cover the fifth annual Profstock, sponsored by Rowan University’s Office of Student Activities, which includes the Student University Programmers and Rowan After Hours. You may remember my article in The Whit and my blog post with the uncensored interviews about Profstock 2013. I had the wonderful opportunity of interviewing rapper B.o.B and Rome of alternative group Sublime with Rome but it was a real pleasure to interview singer Dev.

Before her performance, Dev told me that she might perform a new song at Profstock. After the interview, I made sure to tweet from @TheWhitAE Twitter account about it.

I did not expect one tweet to get so much traffic.

I know this blog is supposed to focus on coverage of arts and entertainment at Rowan University and that this post may come off as bragging, but I find it fascinating that I got to actually break the news to a large audience. As an aspiring journalist, it has always been my dream to report the news first.

Check out this Storify post to give you a visual presentation of how the public found out about Dev performing her new — and still yet to be released — song, “Crazy Talk.”
