For years I didn’t understand Twitter. How and why would you ever want to waste time trying to communicate in 140 characters or less? What would you post about? “Today I ate pizza, it was amaaaazing!” Here’s a photo of a tree. “Oh my, I just saw someone slip and fall, check out the video.”

But for a journalist, Twitter is one of the most effective ways today to convey information to a broad audience. First of all that is because it is in real time. During the Arab Spring and other major events, Twitter has served as a source of information. It has also become a way for politicians to communicate, including infamously the US president. Twitter spats between famous people are relatively common. In a recent dispute between Israel and Turkey, insults were exchanged between governments. So Twitter is far more than just photos of cats and pizza. It’s the way to communicate today, whether it’s the Kardashians, Trump or whoever.
