As Twitter feeds display every single story published by media outlets in real-time – rather than filtering or rearranging stories like services such as Facebook – it remains the primary news distribution channel of choice by journalists world-wide.
Daily Vs Weekly Vs. Online Vs Occassional?
As the 21st century brought digital mediums to prominence, hundreds of student publications – especially in the United States – were faced with a decision: whether or not to continue printing their expensive (yet rather lucrative, due to advertising revenue) editions, or convert completely to online (digital) editions.
At this time, many colleges are trying to cut back on funding for their student newspapers, pushing more publications to go digital-only. Student editors, however, are fighting back on many campuses, trying to maintain their print editions both as a revenue stream and to maintain their journalistic culture. While the debate will likely continue for many years, proponents of print continue to voice their support, and in the meantime, Twitter remains the best way in the foreseeable future to keep up with student journalism.
