Bitter Twitter, silly CNN

by

I hop onto CNN’s home page to see this headline under their Tech section: “Twitter could fuel G-20 violence, warns expert”?

Naturally, I read on…The story tells us that “Headlines proclaiming that G-20 activists and police are following each others’ activities on Twitter, Facebook and other social networking sites may give one the impression that a new age of surveillance and political activism has dawned.”

I honestly have to wonder if this is a joke. The headline is so clearly guilty of the conveying the exact tone the story warns us against…it has to be joke. Right?

Given CNN’s history, I don’t know. Laugh or cry, laugh or cry…?
