Huh. In 2007, your local newspaper website simply had to embrace Twitter or risk irrelevance. Now it’s Twitter that’s acting like the iron-fisted information monolith, and news orgs that look like forward-thinking, digital-first, socially networked platforms of the future.
[Twitter’s] stricter guidelines on the use of tweets go against the trend towards more inclusive, open and networked forms of journalism.
Newspapers can’t win for losing. They get criticized for not having the vision to invent social media, then get punished when they actually use it.
