Briggs Chapter 4

Posted by: | February 14, 2012 | No Comment |

This chapter highlighted the different positive outcomes from microblogging services like Twitter. Firstly, Briggs tells us that Twitter can be used to put out links to recently written material. Another important thing that it does is allow the public to feel connected to the journalist without a one-on-one communication.

Another important aspect of microblogging that Briggs outlines is the flexibility of Twitter. It can be built upon and adapted by other social mediums to get the news out (such as Storify).

Twitter can also be one of the fastest ways to share breaking news with the public. As long as it takes a television broadcast to air, microblogging can get the news out instantly. Being on Twitter and following people on Twitter can help people know what’s going on in the world.
