As several digital journalists discuss in this recent video from PBS online series “Off Book,” the endless stream of information shared over Twitter is part of unremitting news cycle that’s having a profound impact on journalism
The world of journalism has changed in the internet era. Newsrooms are significantly smaller now than they were 10 years ago, and news is no longer a once-a-day product, but instead a constant flow of information.
The rise of Twitter brought concerns within the industry and with the millennial generation wanting instantaneous results and news, journalism began to adjust.
Journalists are now faced with the challenge of adapting their roles in this digital era, finding new ways to add value to content and helping to ensure that the internet is changing our worldview for the better.
