Misusing Twitter

The Associated Press has issued new policies that would contort Twitter-culture beyond any semblance of flexibility.

ESPN is following a similar path. ESPN is often an outfit of innovation, but they’re going backward here.

“Do not break news on Twitter. We want to serve fans in the social sphere, but the first priority is to ESPN news and information efforts.”

They’ve all got their reasons for taking these stands, but in the end, they’re simply demonstrating they don’t understand the world in which they now live.
