Break it to me gently: Twitter bypasses traditional media for breaking news, but where does it lead people next?

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



Abstract:

This study sought to determine the news consumption pattern of college students by asking where respondents get breaking news and where this source leads them next. Guided by the framework of niche theory and theory of relative constancy, we predicted that social media, particularly Twitter, is displacing traditional news media at least for the gratification of learning about the news first. The findings based on an online survey (N=224) supported this general assumption.
