The Media is Dying Twitter feed spurs symbiotic sites synching scribes and situations
Recently, we reported on a Twitter feed that caught our eye: The Media is Dying. With short 140-character blasts, this proved to be a way for PR reps and journalists to see who was coming into or going (or gone altogether) from the industry.
Information detailed corporate layoffs, buyouts, and updates about specific journalists who suddenly found themselves in career limbo. After the initial novelty, we found that monitoring the feed was starting to get depressing.
The first feed gives employers a chance to list media jobs; the second is a platform for journalists to tout 140-character resumes.
With these two feeds, does this mean that the media isn’t dying?
