Information cycle: from rough data (Twitter) to processed information (press) ?

by Laurent François

This visual was drawn by Denis thanks to Olivier :


  • it demonstrates the information bath from a rough data (twitter-ed) to a processed information (press)
  • it insists on the different qualities of an information depending on the medium
  • it proves the information propagation among diverse publics: from rumor/gossip to the consecration (information as a big issue in a press article)


  • this approach only considers information sent from twitter. So to say, from a very tiny pool of information-makers
  • it does not integrate special relationships that a twitter-user can have with other information makers (journalists, PR people, etc.). So no loop is integrated.
  • some breaking news are now twittered by press magazines or journalists themselves! it inverts this pattern
