On this week’s special Science and Technology Edition of District Wire News: Social networks are getting a new look and are starting to explore different partnership options. Technology expert and American University’s most followed person on Twitter join us to talk about how Facebook is now the first social to media site to join Europe’s telecommunications standards company, and why Twitter’s new look is helping the company to stay competitive. We’ll also look at what’s cooking up this Thanksgiving…not your typical turkey, but a comet that is expected to be at its brightest and visible to the naked eye by Thanksgiving. A comet researcher from the University of Maryland will join us to tell us what to look out for and expect. This newscast was produced by Sydney Kashiwagi.
