Re: A Painful Social Media Foray for Seattle Journalists

It is one of the saddest, most shocking stories for a journalist to cover: the murder of a law enforcement official. Four Lakewood, Wash., police officers were shot to death at a Tacoma-area coffee shop Sunday morning -- apparently targeted just because they were cops -- and a dangerous, armed suspect was sought in the Puget Sound region for nearly 48 hours. As in any large metropolitan area, Seattle's media organizations ramped up their coverage, sent reporters everywhere, marshaled all their resources to tell this story in an accurate, timely fashion.

Great article about how various "threads" of the digital world came together, though the problem with the coverage was that there was no one source bringing it all together. Perhaps the newspaper's website could have had a Twitter scroller embedded on their website, along with the blogs--i.e., a real-time website for the "washooting" where the relevant information was posted real-time or near real-time.
