Details how BreakingNews.com and social media users can become news sources
Our team is not just looking at traditional news sources, but updates from observers at the scene who are snapping photos with their phones and sending them out on Twitter. And we’re not only curating them ourselves, but encouraging our users on BreakingNews.com to help us “spot” them. Of course, this only works on highly visible stories (like weather and protests), but as more people use smart phones wired into social media, the volume will only increase.
