Twitter will push the “Breaking news” bar further if they keep this up. That was absolutely amazing…

That really woke everybody up to the potentialities of Twitter. Not only Reuters, but also the BBC, VentureBeat and various others are seriously scanning Twitter. Read this blogpost on ReporTwitters (my blog about journalists using Twitter) for more information about who’s doing what, concerns surrounding accuracy etc.

They were “tweets” by individuals like Patrick Rufinni who posted something to the effect, “I just felt something like an explosion.” Others Twitter users in the area posted similar comments. Dave Winer amplified their “tweets.” This was like a person calling the newspaper and saying, “I just saw something that may or may not be news.” The process of how news is reported is not what is new. The ability of eye-witnesses to provide real-time facets of the story to a broad audience is what is new.

Cripes, does citizen journalism mean accuracy doesn’t matter anymore?
