New York Times Leveraging Twitter As A Content Database

Subscribe by email:

Instead of building our own system, we asked reporters to post their updates to Twitter and use hashtags to associate each update with a race.

It’s very cool that the New York Times found a way to use someone else’s platform to not only churn out updates, but also store and pull in information from their app users and readers.

Even cooler…they aren’t doing anything that you can’t do. What if your own whitelist was made up of a Twitter list you create? It wouldn’t be that hard to do the exact same thing they are doing, would it?
