Comments on: Following News Online + Getting Information on the Mumbai Terrorist Attacks http://designnotes.info/?p=1598 Testing & Sprinting Sat, 27 Jan 2018 04:55:00 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.9 By: Nina http://designnotes.info/?p=1598&cpage=1#comment-100081 Mon, 20 Apr 2009 08:44:22 +0000 http://designnotes.info/?p=1598#comment-100081 I love your visualization of the Mumbai terrorist attacks news flow. I remember first hearing about it from my own Twitter friend, @gsik, as I sat on my bed at home during winter break. It took a good half hour until I could confirm the news via a mainstream/trusted media source (a la NYT, CNN). Same goes for updates on the attacks. I actually wrote about my experience here: http://ninanyc.com/2008/12/01/dont-hate-on-twit

Anyway, the only thing I would add to your diagram is another arrow from (2) Trusted Mainstream News Source leading back to (1) Twitter. I think a key point can be made that MSM now refers *back* to Twitter as an original source. What does that say about the way Twitter is changing the reporting of breaking news?

Awesome post 🙂

There were folks like @vinu, @shahpriya, @gauravonomics who actually went out and took pictures that they shared on Flickr etc.
