Former Twitter CEO, Dick Costolo on Media and Information

Interesting perspective on the access of information and how it affects news, media, and culture. Read the full post here.

Today, people can access information from its original source, instantly. This makes it much more difficult to use information as a tool for wielding power because information is equally, immediately available. It means there are more perspectives on a news story - from mainstream media, eyewitnesses or the newsmakers themselves. It means the record can be set straight when something is reported inaccurately. And that what constitutes a news story is not just decided by a select few, but by individuals all over the world.
