Fake news, truth, and the Twitter way are combining to make the word of traditional journalists more relevant than ever before

Doug Keatinge on the Murray Tweet Index

Twitter is a powerful tool for journalists to help readers avoid ‘fake news’.

Since Twitter’s IPO its shares are up just 8 per cent. Since the first #murraytweetindex review of Irish journalists on Twitter, the number of people following the top 100 journalists has risen over 50 per cent to three million.

Is Twitter a great business investment? Maybe. Is it a powerful channel through which journalists can interact with their reading public? Absolutely.
