Another example of Twitter as a newsgathering tool – this rather fine picture of a fire in Chancery Lane, posted before any news site.
I was speaking to an expert in media and broadcast recently who is adamant that 9/11 will be the last event which the broadcast media cover first. Interesting also that recently Sky has assigned a journalist specifically to monitor Twitter.
This will be the same twitter that informed me yesterday that Natasha Richardson had sadly died. 20 minutes passed before tweets started coming through that was in fact a mis-print.
