Pick of our readers’ comments: Twitter-obsessed BBC


IN response to Kathy Gyngell: Twitter and the lurch to the LeftPitchfork Revolt wrote:

All Beeb journos are obsessed with Twitter. How often do we hear the words ‘Let’s see what people are saying about this on Twitter’ coming through the radio.

Partly because they want to drive people to their own accounts for self-promotion, partly because they are lazy and ‘reporting’ what people are saying on it counts for news these days, and partly because the vast majority of the traffic is by people like them.

It’s just another example of the steady devaluation of quality and neutrality in an organisation that at one time had a well-deserved reputation world-wide for its output.
