Baseball’s Teen-Age Twitter Reporters - The New Yorker

He’s got to be kidding.

After working to confirm the scoops by Fink and Murray, Rosenthal said that he was overwhelmed by similar requests. “I’m getting tons of tweets every day from young kids: ‘Hey, I’ve got a story, can you confirm it?’ It’s funny in one way, but it’s getting to be a little much in another.” Rosenthal may traffic in the flow of information, but he nonetheless marvelled at the success of some of these neophytes. “I am frankly surprised that these guys have done this well,” he said. “They’re working hard and they deserve to be recognized, but, I mean, who are these execs that are willing to reveal sensitive details to teen-agers?”
