The power of Twitter part 2

And another story today that shows the power of Twitter. It is very dangerous to have tweets promoting stories on the website without context. And maybe Twitter is no longer a place for satire, it has become too self-conscious.

It’s a shame, I hate to see the onion get bad press, and would hate it if it means they would tone down their articles on the website. On twitter, however, their Tweets lose context, as described in this article from NYT.
