Un riche témoignage en provenance de Reuters, par Anthony De Rosa, le Social Media Editor de l’agence, à propos du rôle que peuvent jouer les médias sociaux dans une salle de presse : de la collecte à la diffusion. Extrait.
“Social Media is the end of the chain of reporting and the beginning of the chain of gathering information. We have to use good old-fashioned journalism to break down what we see on social media and once we’re comfortable sharing that information we can put it back out.
Most of the time I am monitoring, gathering, reading, consuming information on social media, on our wire and in traditional formats. I’m talking to our newsroom, listening to what they’re hearing, putting it into understandable context, and then finally disseminating it both on social media and on Reuters.com”
