How Al Jazeera uses social media in its reporting

At last week’s TED Conference in California the head of Al Jazeera provided a fascinating overview of the historic changes taking place in the Arab world.

Wadah Khanfar went on to explain (at about the 5 minute mark) how Al Jazeera used social media to cover the recent tech-empowered, youth-led revolutions, and noted how “the internet and connectivity has created a new mindset” in the region.

There’s more about Al Jazeera’s use of Twitter and Tumblr in particular over on Mashable.
