Is this the end of the newspaper?

Today The Guardian has stated that it will be giving up print in favour of Twitter, speculating that all news stories can be reduced to 140 characters. Truly then this is the age of convergence journalism. 

 

No more bulky newspapers on the bus. Just access to a Twitter device. Ah, life will be much simpler!

 

 

 

PS – This was the Guardian’s April Fool story!
