The challenge of "140" to News Media

  1. @THEPLAYETHIC OLD MEDIA MEETS AMBIENT MEDIA?
  2. @THEPLAYETHIC SO I KNOW TRADITIONAL NEWS MEDIA… … BUT IT RADIO JOURNALIST WASN’T OF THE YEAR, 2006 ENOUGH…
  3. @THEPLAYETHIC TWITTER/SOCIAL MEDIA LETS YOU PLAY AT BEING A JOURNALIST…

  5. @THEPLAYETHIC SHOULDA USED QIK.COM…
  6. @THEPLAYETHIC
  7. BUT IF YOU’RE NOT PLAYING AT IT… @THEPLAYETHIC OBVIOUS USES OF TWITTER FOR TRADITIONAL JOURNALISM: 1: BEAT REPORTING (USE CONTENT SEARCH, GEOLOCATED) 2: EARLY WARNING (COMMUNITIES DECIDING WHAT’S NEWS) 3: REALTIME CONTENT (PHOTOS/AUDIO/VIDEO, 1-LINE DESCRIPTION) 4: TRACEABLE SOURCES / INTERVIEWEES / LEADS (@PUNTER) 5: “CAN YOU HELP?” (#QUESTION AT AM, #ANSWERS AT PM) 6: PROMO TOOL FOR TITLES/INDIVIDUAL JOURNALISTS/PIECES 7: EXPERTISE ARCHIVE (FOLKSONOMY OF KNOWLEDGE, ON THE MOVE)
  8. TOUGH QUESTIONS ABOUT TWITTER/ SOCIAL @THEPLAYETHIC MEDIA AND NEWS… WHO VERIFIES THESE FLOWS OF INFORMATION? THE NEWS ORGANISATION - OR THE ‘TRUTH COMMUNITY’? WHAT’S THE VALUE IN CLAIMING AUTHORITY? CAN WE BREAK OUT OF “140” AS A DESIGN/CONTENT LIMITATION FOR REAL-TIME MEDIA? MESO-BLOGGING AS WELL AS MICRO-BLOGGING? HOW “COLLABORATIVE” AND “DISTRIBUTED” ARE JOURNALISTS PREPARED TO BE ABOUT THEIR WORK PROCESS? (SEE WSJ’s LIMITATIONS ON SOCIAL NETWORK UPDATING)
  9. TWITTER AND THE GENERAL CRISIS OF THE @THEPLAYETHIC #THEPLAYETHIC NEWS BUSINESS? IN ROCK’N’ROLL 2.0 THEY SAY “USE WHAT IS UBIQUITOUS TO DRIVE PEOPLE TO WHAT IS SCARCE” TWITTER/SOCIAL MEDIA MAKES NEWS UBIQUITOUS. BUT WHAT IS SCARCE IN JOURNALISM & CAN BE VALUED/MONETISED? NOT PAYWALLS…BUT AUTHORITY?
