  • #ONA15tw

When news breaks, it breaks first on Twitter. But with photos, video and live-streaming, the experience has come a long way from when reporters were largely limited to 140 characters to tell their stories. Meet the leaders of Twitter’s news team from around the world. Hear the latest insights into how news spreads on the platform. See the latest Twitter tools and features, and find out how journalists are using them to inform audiences and shape global conversations.
