A bunch of tweets

Posted April 1st, 2010 by debritz

Brisbane's daily newspaper has introduced a Twitter scroll on its front page, aggregating tweets from several staff members. A good idea - as long as the staff involved realise that tweets hitherto seen only by their followers are now open to all readers of the website. So far, we have one staff member talking about going to a gig and getting drunk, and another bidding us all good night. Not exactly the stuff of a great metropolitan newspaper.
PS: The rest of the tweets tend to point to stories on the website. But, of course, anybody reading the feed is already there.
