Twitter, it makes me a better writer without even realizing it. In 140 characters, you have no choice but to be concise. Twitter has taught me to highlight the most important parts and use those in my writing to remind me the best parts in an event. Jean Tenore made a point of h0w twitter has created better writing in journalism. Dean Baquet had said that he could see that the world of journalism was changing and that through media it would change, it seems that social media has changed journalism but it could actually improve it.
Tenore said Twitter had made her writing better when she can “capture the reaction,” it helps make writing interesting. Capturing the moment to me, is one of the hardest thing a journalist can do. It keeps readers interested and can make people feel a certain way about something. Twitter makes it easier to see what people want, what they want to read about and the more other writers “tweet,” something the more you can realize what they might see as important or what they see as a highlight.
This concept relates to Buttry’s initial reasoning when he wrote 10 ways Twitter makes a better writer. It can distribute content quickly, and can show other journalist what they see as a highlight. It helps me to know what everyone else sees as an important quote or moment.
