Is Twitter Still Useful for Journalists?
Chris Stokel-Walker on Elon Musk's latest changes and their impact.

You might just have noticed that there have been rather a lot of changes at Twitter recently. So much so, that it isn’t even called Twitter any more. (No, I’m not calling it X.) In various outbursts, owner Elon Musk has threatened to remove the block feature and change how headlines are shown on the platform. He has also limited how the DM feature works for unverified (i.e. free) users. Tweetdeck is now a paid product too.

Journalist and author Chris Stokel-Walker returns to the show to discuss how these changes have impacted both the creation and consumption of journalism. Ultimately, we discuss whether or not Twitter remains a useful place for journalists and what the alternatives are.
