The development of technology provides us with new means of sharing news and staying in touch. Twitter which was originally developed as a version of popular social networks has soon become a popular and powerful news resource. There is no need to watch news blocks on TV or read newspapers any more if you are sitting in Twitter. However, this method of getting informed has both its advantages and disadvantages.
Twitter can provide you with news as fast as can be imagined as the users post information practically the same instant the event is happening. Though twits usually do not contain the full account of the events it may be viewed as an effective alert system by the news reporters.
