Yes I do use the social media network for my journalistic works. Even I post daily basis news and updates on Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, etc. Even social media is a big source of news gathering nowadays. Despite the fact of disinformation social media still consider to be the best and prompt news gathering platform. Particularly if I talk about WhatsApp which is undoubtedly playing a pivotal role to get news through the different news groups. As mentioned earlier disinformation also keeps flowing along with the information in these whatsapp groups either but still the importance of these group cannot be denied.
Besides that Twitter is unavoidably another big news gathering platform where all the world leaders, governments, organizations, media conglomerates, public and private companies, and personalities are available. All the above segments of the society give priority for conveying their important messages or updates through twitter. The question is why? In my opinion for two reasons, one is easily accessible to the global audience and two is for their own convenience, rather than calling is communique it is quite easy disseminate the information within seconds just by sitting in the work or home places.
