Twit happens

One potential difficulty when old media uses new media to communicate is that it leaves an easily examined record. No person is strong enough to search the web to find and read old newspaper columns written for Canwest by Keith Baldrey, or sit through hours of Shaw’s Global TV News video, but a moment with Keith’s 140 character pearls of wisdom something is another thing.

With him using Twitter, we’re presented with an interesting and short form record of Baldrey’s work. Spartikus at The Exile, a site to which you should be subscribed, provides the link at Twitverse: The tweets of Keith Baldrey
