Who is or is not behind the tweet?

There is no doubt that social media tools such as Blogger, Twitter, and You Tube are changing the communication landscape. They have a significant role to play in student research. As a librarian/teacher I have long been aware of the importance of helping students learn how to discern what is credible - reliable information. However, I had not thought about helping students, until reading the attached article, become aware of just who has access to the tools and who is the voice behind the media. An interesting dialogue to be had around this for sure!

Is Twitter Really a Tool for Democracy?
