Should there be a Pulitzer Prize for Twitter reporting?

Written by : Tom George| 0 | World News

The Pulitzer board, which administers the journalism awards named after newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer, has changed the terms of submission to require digital entries only, and has also changed the description of the “breaking news” category to stress that real-time reporting will be the main criteria for that award. That has led some — including the Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard — to speculate we could see a Pulitzer Prize for live-tweeting of the news. Whether that ever comes to pass or not, there’s a case to be made that Twitter is the best tool for breaking news that the world of journalism has seen in a long time.

  • Hi Libby,

    Thank you for weighing in. I agree!

  • Without a doubt- when news cant be censored, its the best. Twitter should have their own awards.. its really hard to say anything meaningful in so few letters!
    Cheers
