The Challenges of Sports Journalism in the Twitter Age

A great piece on by Poynter’s Jason Fry that explores the impact that Twitter is having on ESPN and it’s reporters, when it comes to navigating relationships:

… the news cycle has been jammed on permanent fast-forward. Once, stories were reported and written with an eye on the next day’s newspaper or that night’s sports report. When news organizations went digital, the news cycle sped up, moving the goalposts to the time required to publish a story to a Web site. Twitter moved them again, to how quickly a tweet can be composed and posted. That’s created what Rob King, senior vice president for print and digital content at ESPN, calls “a second-by-second news cycle.”
