Can tweeting replace covering breaking news in some way? In the following paper I am trying to answer the questions 1) whether any tweet can be informational since its receiver has to know the context of the piece of information that the given tweet is to cover, and 2) if ‘informational’ tweeting can be free from typical weaknesses of the news media as cyberhoaxing, rumours spreading, misinformation, news framing, etc. The main problem of ‘informational tweeting’ is its 1) high speed – the speed which does not allow to verify (what is tweeted) properly and 2) very small semantic content that entails different meanings of what is tweeted for real.
