When I asked Can Twitter be journalism? I concluded it could be journalism, but that’s not how most journalists use it.
Then Liam Tung at ZDnet Australia showed how powerful the 140 character messaging service is in the hands of a skilled reporter.
Tung provides daily coverage of the trial between Perth-based ISP iiNet and the Australian Federation against Copyright Theft (AFACT).
He frequently tweets updates from the court room.
ZDNet also publishes the feed on a web page. This makes sense because making money from a Twitter feed isn’t easy, but a popular web page traffic sells plenty of advertising.
