That’s right…On Twitter! What better way is there to keep up on the Breaking News about the Boehner Plan Vote in Congress? Up to the minute tweets detailing the back room meetings, pizza parties, calling Representatives in for closed door meetings, and the like.
Our “filtered” news channel of choice on Twitter is @LukeRussert. He embraces social media as a tool for reporting the news. His tweets are accurate (not sensationalized), to the point, honest and delivered with a sense of humor when appropriate. It doesn’t hurt that he is a Buffalo Bills fan also, but that’s just an added bonus.
Twitter, as well as other social media platforms, are becoming the preferred devices for delivering the news. They are NOW…when we want them. With Twitter pushing ads to user timelines, it looks like they see it coming too. News can now be delivered on your device of preference, at your location of preference. No more being held captive by a television news channel…ranting a network’s version of the news…at the time that they decide you want to hear it. Now it is news when you want it…where you want it…how you want it!
Tonight give it a try. Turn off your television…tune in to Twitter…and watch the news!
Those are some of the questions you, or your friends and acquaintances, must have been asking of Netflix. What could be in store for the future?
Are they trying to eliminate, or at least decrease, the use of dvd’s? (We hope so!) Trying to force people to choose one-or-the-other? Streaming video or dvd, but who would pay for both? There are too many choices out there with iTunes, Xbox 360, Hulu and the others. Heck, BitTorrent is even an option. At our house, no great preference really, we don’t watch network television, except for news. Political news seems best delivered by Jon Stewart, so we wait to watch online. We don’t care which channel we use…as long as it is NOW! Honestly, the only reason we would ever use a DVD is when we absolutely could not get the content we wanted digitally.
Maybe Netflix is posturing for something down the road. Some big deal or merger. Will they expand content and get social? Are they preparing for an increase in shipping costs (for dvd)? Is there concerns over legislation or future bandwidth caps and metered broadband services (for livestream)?
All of these questions come to mind while pondering this recent move. Will the second quarter earnings statement shed any light on the future. We will just have to wait and watch and see.
As long as we don’t have to watch on dvd when it arrives in the mail…and we can livestream it!

It is almost complete. We’re just putting the final touches on it. You know…dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s. Well OK, maybe more like finalizing data, double-checking sources, adjusting the color palettes and scrutinizing fonts.
