Twitter has become the go-to social network for breaking news in recent years. The short form, ability to view a constantly updating stream in real time, and searchable hashtags made it perfectly suited to the rapid dissemination of news. With the launch of Periscope, a live streaming app for iOS, Twitter has an opportunity to deliver even more news, with added credibility.
Through partnerships with companies like Dataminr, Twitter has been informing the mainstream news cycle directly.
