MEDIA mogul Rupert Murdoch has finally taken the plunge on social networking site Twitter. It’s created a bit of a media frenzy, as the News Corporation boss has stayed away from social media.
Piers Morgan reacted by tweeting: “Now this is going to be fascinating… welcome to Twitter my old boss
John Prescott’s responded with a witty tweet writing: “Welcome to Twitter…
@rupertmurdoch. I’ve left you a Happy New Year message on my voicemail!”
It’s still being debated whether the account is genuine or not but it has the Twitter certified tick of authenticity. But if it is the case that Mr Murdoch has joined Twitter then what does this signal for traditional media? Especially Murdoch owned traditional media?
Whatever it may mean or not mean here is a New Years message from Mr Murdoch via his Twitter account: “Happy 2012. May itbe better than all experts predict. Has to be! Must change everything to create jobs for all, especiallyyoung”
