So I got a microblog for your blog so that you can blog while you blog.
Blogging is the hottest and most accessible delivery system online today. But while blogging is the big daddy of getting your name out there, there is another, quicker way to accentuate and publicize yourself even further: Twitter.
Especially for journalists, social media is picking up speed with its ability to get the basics across. According to a Pew Research study, 52% of Twitter users also get news on this network.
So we have flow of events: printed publications must now shift to online modes due to money issues. Consolidation is key, and coupled with the boom of technology, social trends also demand this shift. The speed of information’s travel is increasing, along with society’s need to keep in touch. Therefore, the rise of the blog.
The complex relationships between bloggers and those that run websites are beginning to result in partnerships that are profitable for all involved.
