As we told you last week, social media is quickly becoming the leading way to communicate during a national disaster. Both news agencies and the public have realized what an invaluable tool Twitter can be.
Twitter gets that.
That’s why they’ve launched #TfN or Twitter for Newsrooms. It’s a resource for journalists in order to find facts, verify facts, promote their work and more – all faster.

Do you think most journalists will embrace and use this guide to their benefit?
