One thing guaranteed to make me grind my teeth is newspapers and magazines using Twitter as a source. Duane Gundrum at Open Salon has written an excellent blog on why some star’s Twitter feed is NOT a news story. For the love of jumpin’ jehosephat, Tweets are not news. Subscribing to someone’s Twitter feed does not an investigative reporter make. Twitter is narcissistic nonsense and no amount of “oh, but it lets people tell their side of the story”-style justification is going to make me think otherwise.
