Twitter Is A Great Tool, But What Happens When It’s Wrong?
Over at GigaOM, veteran journalist Mathew Ingram has an excellent article up called Twitter Is A Great Tool, But What Happens When It’s Wrong? In it he discusses false tweets, their spread, their potential impact, and how they can be averted. Great reading and food for thought. I do agree that Twitter should have a mechanism to halt retweets if a tweeter discovers something he or she tweeted is not true. Deleting a tweet is not enough if the tweet has been retweeted already.
