Twitter chat asks: How long can newspapers survive?

It’s the age-old new media question – exactly how long can the newspaper survive?

It’s also the topic of a debate planned tonight as part of a series of weekly Twitter debates run by @CommsChat.

The online session will kick off at 8:00pm, but pre-chat Tweets already suggest that “not long” will be the main response, with some proposing a ‘RIP date’ as early as 2020.

The @CommsChat team say they hope the online debates will encourage and speed up media integration.

The advent of social media has also seen all the comms disciplines gently bleed into one another – this community, by sharing our collective experience and opinions, can be at the forefront of this evolution.

To join in with the debate use hashtag #CommsChat.
