The news is what we are talking about

Only some years ago the news was what the newspaper and television printed and broadcasted. It still is, in a sense, but much less the news that you actually get to know. Nowadays, the real news is what your connections in social networks are talking about.
I do not use Twitter, but I am still, since the day it appeared, fascinated by the concept of the real-time « stream of collective consciousness », so to say. The website Trendsmap shows what the world is twittering about, and how much – in other words, what’s news today. When I watch the tag map I get a strange sensation of looking at something at once totally futile and extremely meaningful, because it represents the present moment in the minds of so many. trendsmap
