The Future of Writing | Palgrave Macmillan | Published : 2014


Beckett and Lumby explore the impact of social media on journalism. In particular they address the use of Twitter to convey news information at extraordinary speed, while advancing news events - or 'stories' - in real time. Beckett and Lumby analyse the various challenges confronting journalism in the age of 'the news that never sleeps'.
