Could Twitter Save the New York Times?
May 14, 2009 by Mary Adams
Here’s a new perspective on the newspaper question that I have been examining a lot lately. Umair Haque suggests How to Save Newspapers (Or, Why the NYT Should Acquire Twitter). He says that it is time for some different thinking. Twitter is a new delivery mechanism. And newspapers definitely need new delivery networks.
Remember that it was recently disclosed that the Boston Globe had an opportunity to invest in Monster.com fourteen years ago. It would have disrupted their cash cow: classified ads. In hindsight, we realize that they made a big mistake.
He is on to something.
