The editor of Management Today, a magazine, seems to be having an off-day:
Like Black Lace reunions and charity wrist bands, Twitter is a tedious fad we would do well to pull the plug on. News editors at the national newspapers have been desperate to keep up with the Joneses, i.e their proper broadcast media rivals, in offering up-to-the-minute G20 news of the crusties and anti-capitalist protestors surging on the Bank of England, busting into branches of RBS, and trying to knock policemen’s helmets off. They’ve gone for Twitter because it’s The New Thing, and because they don’t have the resources in their depleted budgets to do it properly.
Quaint, don’t you think?
