I quickly found out how wrong I was.
The post was not about furloughs, but tweeting:
I got a call the other day from Joe Strupp, senior editor at Editor & Publisher. He had heard from someone in the industry that our newsroom used “social networking” as a tool for gathering the news.
I’ll admit to having to bluff for a few minutes until I figured out what he was talking about. Social networking still isn’t exactly newsroom jargon.
But, Facebook, My Space, Twitter... blogging are more and more becoming standard fare in the newsroom.
We are signed up on Facebook and we “tweet” three or four times a day. Nearly 200 people follow us via Twitter. But, if you aren’t twittering, you can see those same alerts on our Web site.
On the positive side, Globe employees will have more time for social networking. You can't beat those tweets.
Anyone with a copy of CNHI's letter ordering the second furlough, please feel free to send it along. My e-mail address is email@example.com.
