Everyone with an internet connection can easily access Twitter for the latest scoop. And while the use of Twitter as a news medium is growing steadily, there are some drawbacks from relying on this medium too heavily:

can travel faster than the traditional news cycle of responding to an
event, checking facts, and reporting. So while neither one is wrong, it
can stir a lot of confusion leading to misinformation.

Unlike mere Tweets which are forgotten in a glace, stories like these somehow manage to stay relevant till today. And that’s the future of journalism.
