A moment of frustration led to the creation of @themediaisdying - a Twitter feed that now chronicles the changing landscape of the media industry.
It was on a sunny November day in LA when, after updating the same spreadsheet for the fifth time that day with another outlet going out of business or long-time contact leaving a familiar outlet, I thought ‘a big shift has happened’.
Initially, @themediaisdying was anonymous but I revealed my identity when BusinessWeek asked me to pen an article about the state of the media industry.
With 30,000+ followers globally, this 'microblog' network has become a way of finding out what's really going on, to get a job (@themediaishirin) and to post that you're job-hunting (@themediaishuntn).
