Is Twitter The CNN Of The New Media Generation? by Brian Solis

Is Twitter The CNN Of The New Media Generation? by Brian Solis

Published by Brian Solis
This past weekend the Twitterverse spoke-out in exasperation and opposition against traditional media networks (CNN specifically) and the absence of instantaneous coverage of the Iranian election and the resulting fallout. “We the people” wanted real-time information regarding the violent protests that erupted on the streets of Iran and the stories probing potential foul play in the results. We took to Twitter to express discontent and to also uncover the real story as it was unfolding live through citizen journalism.

The world was watching…and it did so on Twitter and not CNN or any other news network.

The world was watching…and it did so on Twitter and not CNN or any other newsnetwork.At the140 Characters Conference(#140conf) in New York, Robert Scoble hosted afervent discussion with social media-savvy traditional news personalities to explore howTwitter was transforming the process of news gathering and lead sourcing. JoiningScoble wasAnn Curry(@AnnCurry) – News Anchor on NBC’s Today Show and host of Dateline NBC,Rick Sanchez(@ricksanchezcnn) – host of the 3PM weekday edition of CNN Newsroom,Ryan Osborn(@todayshow) producer, NBC Today Show,andClayton Morris(@claytonmorris) – anchor, Fox News.In the case of Iran’s election, Twitter once again served as the lifeline to news andinformation related to a monumental and historical event.Conference organizer Jeff Pulver calls this the era of “now” media fueled by new andsocial media and the people who power Twitter and other popular networks. The pursuitof “now” is conditioning us to expect information as it happens, whether it’s accurate or developing.The question is, how will this latest example of community-powered news consumptionand distribution effect how traditional news organizations gather and report on news.Robert Scoble said of his inspiration for the session, “I wanted to learn more about theelection in Iran and the crisis and the violence that was spilling onto the streets. Icouldn’t find anything on CNN. In fact, all I could find was Larry King talking tomotorcycle mechanics.”

His frustration was also shared by many, which served as the groundswell for thepowerful Twitter storm that ensued.If we reflect upon the words shared by Twitter creator and co-founder Jack Dorsey in hismorning keynote, “Twitter is about approach, transparency, and immediacy.”
