Twitter Is Becoming A Global Breaking News Source
Twitter is one of the fastest growing news sources for breaking news. When Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast, news corrections and updates were sourced through Twitter. Last year’s tweets about the elections were a great source for instant news and information. And the trend continues.
Twitter allows local users/reporters to instantly spread information to anyone who follows them. While Twitter began as a way to connect with friends and families, it has grown to larger proportions by connecting Twitter followers with breaking news. Information can easily grow viral this way and reach a large audience, which can respond and correct any information that comes their way.

Does Your Business Need A Twitter Account?
As the world continues to evolve and you and your customers use social media sites as a way to get your news, it is becoming more and more expected that all of your business’ important news and events will be seen on your Twitter. And it adds value for your customers to link to pertinent news on your Twitter feed. During the 2012 Olympics, as well as the most recent election, people were able to chat about events and new information in real time. This kind of real time access is expected now and will help your customers remain connected to you on a personal level without spending additional advertising dollars.
