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!
