  •  wasn't there a study released last year (5+ / 0-)

    showing that Twitter was indicative of precisely nothing? I'm pretty sure there was.

    How much was wrong in what Twitter reported about things like the Green Wave in Iran a few years ago? How many so-called scanner reports and the like were reported over night as Tweeters followed this story? In some ways, a platform like Twitter is just as bad, if not worse, than the media. Anything--like the Sunil Tripathi story--is out there instantly and catches fire in no time. It happens all the time.

    The problem probably isn't the medium. It's the people using it.
