Fear of Twitter being ‘closed’, why are journalists the most worried?
London, November 24 (SO News/Agency) If the social networking website Twitter does not exist, maybe the common people will not be affected as much as the journalists. This is because the social media web platform has become an important tool for them to get news and deliver it to people. According to the French news agency AFP, since billionaire Elon Musk took control of Twitter and It then began laying off staff, and speculations have been rife ever since that the platform will shut down soon.
Nick Newman, a journalist associated with the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, says, ‘Most journalists can’t quit (Twitter). It’s actually an important part of his job. Nick Newman was working at the BBC when Twitter took off in 2008 and 2009. He said, ‘It was a new way of connecting with people. Which became a fantastic resource for case studies and experts.
But in the meantime, Twitter has also become a competitor, replacing the newsroom and bringing to the masses terrorist attacks, natural disasters or any important ‘breaking news’. Nick Newman said that ‘journalists are starting to realize They will no longer be the only source of news as usual and their role will change to contextualize and verify the news.
It also meant that journalists depended on the platform to get timely updates on the announcements of politicians and celebrities. This reliance on Twitter by journalists for news has also led to many problems. Nick Newman believes that ‘debates on Twitter are largely elitist,’ which has certainly been a problem in newsrooms.
