Twitter has become the most up to date source for news, and with that comes an opportunity. News broke out earlier today on Twitter that Gaddafi has been captured, so a click on the #Gaddafi trend and off i went to the search results page. Lots of news sources appear, but what stood out was the paid-for promoted tweet from Al-Jazeera. ‘ News’ is Twitter, right ? That’s why we love it and use it, because it’s the most up to date source of ‘news’. Al-Jazeera’s use of twitter promoted tweets is a clever use of the very simple tool, and seems like a top way of attracting an audience to your ‘station’. The definition of news, and the role Twitter can play in its future is for another day.
