What’s in a Tweet? Foreign Correspondents’ Use of Social Media

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Given the ongoing debate about foreign correspondence being an endangered species and the foreign news hole shrinking ever more, this study explores how foreign correspondents at major U.S. networks use Twitter to break news, promote their work and their news organization, and communicate with their audiences. As the uprisings in Iran and Moldova indicated in 2009, Twitter can be the go-to medium to break news from faraway parts of the world, and, unlike citizen journalists, foreign correspondents at the scene have the advantage of established credibility, access to news sources, and a larger following that can disseminate their tweets far beyond the traditional reach of their traditional outlet. This content analysis builds on previous research that shows how new technologies like Twitter are reshaping news communication.
