Facebook and Twitter in broadcasting

It’s nice that people’s comments on social networking sites Facebook and Twitter can actually be included as part of hard news on television.

Gone are the days when only the rich and famous are quoted in news stories. Now, the thoughts of “ordinary” people on various issues can be an integral part of the news.

Not all wall posts and tweets are broadcast material. But with some patience, you’ll find a tweet or two that can enhance news stories with their wisdom, insight, or even humor.
