Twitter is the death of journalism.

I would immediately respect anyone in the media who swore off Tweeting altogether.

journalism was already dying, at least in the shape that we knew it in the past. i don't take your point, though. this is just bite-sized news. as you use it, you learn how it's useful. nothing that millions and millions of people use everyday for tons of different reasons should be written off cavalierly.

It has it's place I guess but I don't understand judging a writer/journalist on how much they Tweet. (Not defending Person really). I'd hope for more of a journalist than just having ears, a smartphone and fingers to type with.

I just find it odd that we now have threads which are just lists of Tweets.....or the TV news or sports casts now report on whats happening on Twitter....it's just weird. I digress, carry on

For this kind of news, tweeting should be mandatory for the journalist. If you're not getting the news out right away, someone else is. That's why us Panther fans are following Aaron Wilson, a Raven's insider, instead of Joe Person, the lone Panther beat writer.

times are changing and with the advancing pace of technology the way information is gathered and disseminated is constantly evolving. i can appreciate the philosophy of responsible journalism and wishing to gather facts before posting something the second it becomes news, but in the sports world stuff is usually pretty cut and dried. joe person needs to step his game up and start releasing information promptly. he is routinely outpaced and in today's fingertip society that just doesn't cut it.

Personally i don't care to know it the second it happens. It would be perfectly fine for me to find out within a day but have some substance and credibility to it. I'm getting old :(

That's why in my previous post I said, "For this kind of news ...", An article on the corruption of someone in the government, take your time, follow Payton's advice on "getting your ducks in a row" before publishing, and make a well written piece. Quotes from a HC of a NFL team, tweet as soon as you got it.
