Twitter as a news Medium

September 15, 2010 paigewalters

I found this article very interesting because I see the validity in it. Because I am on Twitter I enjoy that it is becoming a news medium and is used by popular news sources and celebrities. However the article said that Twitter is becoming more of a news medium instead of a social network. I hope this is not true and Twitter does not evolve to being more of a news medium than social network. I feel that people use Twitter as a news medium in a social aspect (to share information with others before it reaches high volume release). I also hope that the 140 character limit stays the same because otherwise people would have postings that are too long and make Twitter much less enjoyable.
