Twitter: And we’re off to the races!

22 Apr

twitter-2

I saw a breaking story today out of Arizona about a school shooting today (which hadn’t actually happened) which made me think about the way our new media works. It’s twitterific! The speedier the delivery, it seems that there is less fact checking. Which is why I still prefer to wait until the story settles into place. Otherwise it’s all a big mess of jumbled facts and messed up figures.
