Good news travels fast; bad news even faster. This has been the standard for quite some time now… With the skyrocketing growth of social media, are the standards swiftly becoming even more refined? The trends of late involve citizens discovering breaking news via their Twitter or Facebook accounts, instead of their local news or CNN. Think back to earlier this week… several huge bouts of breaking news were released. A lot of the news broke out during the middle of the workday, and unless you have a TV in your office, you may not have had any way of finding out until you got home that evening. Since we have recently emerged into the realm of social media, this is no longer the case.
