AP Journalists Reprimanded for Tweeting Before Posting on News Wires [bbc.co.uk]
Associated Press has reprimanded some of its journalists for breaking news on Twitter before posting it on the wires.

The news agency issued the warning after members of its staff tweeted that they had been arrested at the Occupy Wall Street camp in Manhattan.

An email from bosses followed telling them that they had violated AP's social media policies.



I guess it's a little bit like tweeting about a product launch before the product launch actually takes place.

In a follow-up article, it is reported that UPI, Reuters and the BBC have designated certain employees to do nothing but monitor the tweets and FB postings of all known AP journalists, and report all promising leads.

Were they protestors? Or journalists grandstanding and hoping to get arrested? Probably the latter.

Though they could be the former, even though they'll deny that the media tends to be left-centric.

Funny that my first reaction wasn't about twitter, but about journalists being arrested at a protest. I'm not overly fond of traditional media reporters.
