Twitter isn't a media organisation.

You aren't making sense...

Is it not media?

Is in not an organization?

Don't they have lawyers protecting their policies and corporate communications?

The key difference is that, unlike a newspaper, they are not generating their own content. If you want to put Twitter and Facebook into a very general "media" category, fine, but they are very different beasts from print or broadcast media...

They don't have to generate content. 10,000 monkeys do it for free, then they decide which 'totally fair' system they will use to promote messages which support their candidates, causes or such.

Like AP, but without the trappings of commerce or ethics.

What's hard to understand about "No, it's not a media organisation"? :think:

are you trying to say it isn't media?

Or that it isn't organized?

Your words 'not a media organization' don't work. Have you got any others?

Media is just the plural of medium, which is "an agency or means of doing something," so without some modifier it's a pretty amorphous term. It seems like we got in trouble when we shortened "the News Media" to just "the Media."

So which media are we talking about here, social or news?

Agreed. And I don't think you can equate the village gossip writ large (Twitter) with serious newspaper or broadcast media...

Yeahbut, it's wonderfully convenient for promoting the narrative of aggrievement and victim-hood that's so popular in some quarters these days.

It is known that moderators aren't appreciated in at least one household on the northern shore of the Great Slave Lake. Paid moderators on Twitter? Not cool, man. ;)
