French journalists forced to use Twitter, Facebook for news

Five journalists will be forced to use Twitter and Facebook as their sole access to news for five days in an experiment to discover the value of social notworking.

According to the UK Press Gazette, following a story in Le Parisien, the journalists work for French speaking radio stations in an experiment called “behind closed doors on the net”.

They won’t be allowed to watch TV, read papers, or listen to the radio, but will be able to click on links in Twitter or Facebook. One French Canadian journalists won’t be allowed to click on links.
