The Social Implications of Twitter
Twitter has begun to have profound implications on many spheres of our current lives, from journalism, to business, to law and education. While it is a beneficial tool, it is equally important to take a look at what Twitter means in our modern sphere. It has shaped and somewhat altered the way that journalists collect and distribute information or breaking news stories. It has been used as an advertising tool for businesses and the raising of political campaign funds. Furthermore, the educational implications of Twitter on education have made children less emotionally aware of the implications of their actions, due to the instantaneous nature of the social media site.
