The early bird catches the worm
Twitter is such a valuable resource and it’s changed the way the media operates. Many years ago you’d have to wait for the morning newspaper to find out the latest news and results. More recently it would be the six o’clock news. Nowadays news is released on the Internet within seconds of it happening, and more often than not, it is members of the general public posting the news on Twitter before journalists or news outlets have even had a chance to prepare their columns.
