Twitter dichotomy

The Daily Mail: How boring – celebrities sign up on Twitter to reveal the most mundane aspects of their lives.

Michael Litman finds his new job via Twitter.

While Web 1.0 media is busy having a pop at Twitter and other social media sites, Web 2.0 media is busy putting these sites to practical use. Like job hunting, crowdsourcing and flat swopping.

It’s a good job there’s not some kind of credit crunch on in an industry that’s not quite sure where it’s going or even what the future will hold as said industry moves onto assorted platforms that many in that industry can’t or won’t understand.

Oh.

    “…an industry that’s not quite sure where it’s going”…sounds like the newspaper industry to me…surely you’re not describing the Daily Mail as a newspaper?

    Would Design by Humans or springleap.com be examples of crowdsourcing?
